Notes

Medieval ringwork and bailey incorporating and modelled from the upper part of a glacial mound. The ringwork is 'D' shaped with the bailey to the north west. This castle is unusual as the bailey survives. In Shropshire ringworks are comparatively rare in relation to other contemporary types of early Norman castle incorporating a mound. The base diameter is about 65 metres and the height to the interior is 3 metres from the outside ground level on the west. The D-shaped interior is 35 metres in diameter and is enclosed by a rampart, 14 metres to 17 metres in width and up to 2 metres in height. There is a 4 metre wide entrance in the south west side. Scheduled.
