THE MOUNT

DESCRIPTION + /

The remains of a medieval motte castle, surviving as an earthwork. Possibly the mound at Weston dug into circa 1815 when a double-walled oblong building was discovered. The mound measures around 30 metres in diameter at the base and between 15 to 18 metres across the top. It is steep-sided and stands about 4.2 metres high. The mound is surrounded by a ditch, now only visible as a shallow depression on the eastern side. The size of the motte mound suggests that it was only large enough to support a small structure, such as a watchtower. Scheduled.
