WILLIAMS HILL

DESCRIPTION + /

The remains of a large ringwork and bailey castle built early in the reign of William Rufus (circa 1090 AD) and superceded by the late Norman castle (SE 18 NW 2) soon after 1180 AD. The enclosure is about 160 feet by 115 feet and it is 40 feet in height. It is defended by a ditch 20 feet wide with counterscarp banks 9 feet deep. A platform on the north west end of the enclosure may be the site of a wooden tower. The site of a small bailey to the south east is disputed. Scheduled.
