Brinklow Castle is a Norman earthwork motte and bailey fortress, founded by Robert de Mowbray. The large and impressive 11th century motte, is encased by a wide ditch, with a counterscarp bank. A high rampart, with a wide ditch surrounds the large bailey, which is separated into two wards, by an inner rampart and ditch. This well preserved earth and timber castle, was probably abandoned by the 13th century. 3 miles south-west is Brandon Castle and 6 miles east is Churchover Castle.
Brinklow Castle is located in the village centre, off the B1345. 7 miles east of Coventry, on the A428-B4027.
The site is freely accessible in daylight hours.
