Cranmers Mound Aslockton
SK 744-401 Nottinghamshire England

Cranmers MoundCranmers Mound is a Norman earthwork motte and bailey fortress, with a later reference to Archbishop Thomas Cranmer. The low motte and the two rectangular courts were all enclosed by wet ditches, which is part of later water management. During the post-medieval period, the motte was used as a prospect mound and the moated platforms to the east of the mound, are presumably the site of the original bailey. 7 miles south-east is Belvoir Castle and 12 miles west is Nottingham Castle.
