Notes

A ring motte surviving as an earthwork, partly overlying the site of an earlier enclosure of which no trace remains. The main earthwork has been formed by cutting off the promontory by a deep ditch. Spoil from the ditch has been used to form a strong inner rampart on the south east side of the enclosed area which has been scarped to form an almost perfect circle. The main ditch has an average width of 13 metres with an inner bank 2.5 metres high internally and 5 metres above the bottom of the ditch. Scheduled.
