Castle Mound, Melling

Castle Mound

Here are some new photos of the motte and bailey remains in the grounds of the vicarage behind St Wilfreds

The motte can just about be seen through the trees as you enter the church yard.

The motte has been badly damaged by landscape gardening, and the bailey has probably been incorporated into the garden and the churchyard. No evidence can be seen today of the ditches and ramparts that would have formed parts of the defences.
