MOUNT HILL

DESCRIPTION + /

Motte and bailey. The earthworks comprise a motte with a mound, possibly contemporary, on top. A ditch, now terminated by quarrying extends to the south-east, and presumably formed part of the south boundary of the eastern bailey. Nebulous disturbance east of the motte probably marks the site of the remainder of the bailey defences. The motte was incorporated in a garden scheme and a summerhouse built on the top.
