Aldford Castle is a late 11th or early 12th century earthwork motte and bailey fortress, founded by Richard de Aldford. The large motte is encased by a wide wet ditch and stands within the remaining wide ramparts and wet ditches of a rectangular bailey. Excavations on the flat-top motte found the stone foundations of a shell keep, flanked by a D-shaped tower. 3 miles west is Pulford Castle and 9 miles east is Beeston Castle.
