Notes

Earthworks of a motte in Cusworth Park. Field investigations in 1964 found it to measure 16ft high, and 60ft by 70ft wide. The ditch which was about 20 ft wide had been filled in on the east. The counterscarp bank survived on the north side. The Motte is scheduled.Part of the circumference of the ditch surrounding the motte is visible as an earthwork on air photographs.
