The small Lancashire village of Dolphinholme lays around 2 and a half miles East of Galgate, just off the M6 and junction 33. The motte and bailey castle remains can be found on a high cliff overlooking the River Wyre.
There are reportedly stone footings on the summit of this tiny motte, perhaps indicating the remains of a stone tower, or the remains of a quarryman’s hut. These were not seen on my visit.
Although the remains are not easily seen, a foot path runs some way alongside the remains….affording tantalising peeks at the earthworks.
