Notes

Medieval motte and bailey castle at Castle Tump. The motte stands 14 metres high and has a flattened top 8 metres in diameter. The flattened area of the bailey surrounds the motte and extends to the south, defined by a curving field boundary. A ditch remains visible on aerial photography as an earthwork. The motte and its surrounds are scheduled.
