Whittington Motte is a late 11th century earthwork motte and bailey fortress, which now supports the church and churchyard of St Michael the Archangel. A natural hillock has been scarped into a low oval motte, with the remaining platform becoming a crescentic-shaped bailey. The church, with its graveyard has considerably altered the castle and there are now no visible remains of any encasing banks or ditches. 3 miles south is Chapel Hill, Arkholme.
Whittington Motte is located in the village centre, off Church Street. 13 miles north-east of Lancaster, on the M6-B6254.
The site is in the churchyard and is freely accessible in daylight hours, check website for details.
Car parking is by the side of the road.
