Castle Hills Langthwaite
SE 551-067 Yorkshire England

Castle Hills LangthwaiteCastle Hills is an 11th century earthwork motte and bailey fortress, founded by Nigel Fozzard, on lands held from Robert of Mortain. The motte encased by a wide wet ditch, defends a bean-shaped eastern bailey and a small north-western mound, which is possibly a barbican. The predecessor to Radcliffe Moat, the low-lying site, is encased by deep wet ditches, with counterscarp banks. Once protected by marshy land, the site is heavily overgrown, so is best viewed in winter. 8 miles south-west at is Conisborough Castle and 11 miles north-east at Thorne is Peel Hill.
