Notes

Medieval earthwork occupying an eastward projecting spur south of Langford Barton. The castle mound, some 46m in diameter and almost perfectly circular, consists of a prominent ring-mound formed by the cutting of a ditch through the natural spur. Although refered to as an apparantly mutilated motte some sites do not easily fall into the category of either motte or ringwork and this site displays characteristics of both motte and ringwork.
