Type Of SiteMOTTE
A disturbed, sub-circular, ditched mound, c.41.5-46m in diameter and up to 4.0m high, apparently formed by cutting off the end of a natural bank.
A walled plantation about the mound is called "Druids's Grove".
Thought to be an unfinished motte, however damage by treasure seekers/e. archaeologists, makes interpretation difficult.
