Notes

Earthwork remains of a Motte and Bailey. Field investigation in 1971 stated that the site was in very poor condition. The motte was fairly flat up to 1.5 metres high on the north side and up to 4 metres high on the south side. The scarp which presumably represents the bailey averages 6 metres wide and is between 1 and 2 metres high. Scheduled.
