Notes

Earthwork remains of a Motte and bailey. The circular motte averages 74 yards in diameter at the base and rises approximately 21 feet above the surrounding moat which is now (1972) practically dry. A kidney-shaped bailey is surrounded by a shallow ditch. The entrance to the bailey appears to be in the middle of the north side. Scheduled.
