Notes

Medieval motte and bailey, ditches, fishpond and ridge and furrow seen as cropmarks and earthworks. The motte is 30 metres across and surrounded by a broad ditch or moat. Two baileys are visible, the first of which is five sided, polygonal, 85 metres by 80 metres. A second bailey lies to the north and is curvilinear in shape. There is an oblong depression 35 metres by 12 metres which may be the site of a fishpond and further earthworks which may be outworks to the motte and bailey, along with ridge and furrow. Scheduled.
