Description
Stephen's Castle is a large motte, 8.0m high, about 30m overall diameter. OS preliminary sketches (1819?) appear to show the castle earthworks prior to the building of the college, with a small work north-west of the motte and two successive subrectangular enclosures to the south. The retaining wall east and south-east of the Old College buildings may preserve something of this layout.

Later incorporated in college landscaping (Nprn302080) and truncated by building.
