Castle Haugh Newsholme
SD 830-508 Lancashire England

Castle HaughCastle Haugh is an 11th century earthwork motte, founded by William de Percy. The truncated motte, which is partly encased by a deep ditch, supports a strong D-shaped rampart. Standing on high ground, against the steep slope formed by the valley of the River Ribble, it commands extensive views to the north-east and south-east. Sadly the position of the bailey has been lost and to the west, part of the motte has collapsed down the scarp. 5 miles north-east is Hellifield Peel and 9 miles south-west is Clitheroe Castle.
