Type Of SiteMOTTE
A sub-circular ditched mound, 16.5-18.5m in diameter and 0.8m high, 30-31m overall diameter.
Described as a motte by the RCAHMW, with traces of a bailey on the NE. Recent disturbances have produced the impression of a causeway.
Charcoal, mortar and coke from the mound, with reports of 'iron balls', suggest a comparatively recent date.
