Monument Number 195689

Hob Uid: 195689
Location :
Dorset
East Chelborough
Grid Ref : ST5535005490
Summary : Earthwork remains of a Motte and Bailey. Field investigation in 1971 stated that the site was in very poor condition. The motte was fairly flat up to 1.5 metres high on the north side and up to 4 metres high on the south side. The scarp which presumably represents the bailey averages 6 metres wide and is between 1 and 2 metres high. Scheduled.
More information : (ST 55350549) Earthworks (NR). (1)

This site appears to be the remains of a motte and bailey castle. The motte, at the W end, is about 6 feet high on the north and more on the south side. It is irregular in shape and measures 30 yards by 50 yards. There are no traces of a ditch but to the east are the scarps of an irregularly shaped bailey enclosing about 2 acres. Dampness at this site may have caused the removal to the ridge top site (ST 50 NE 7). (2-3)

This site is in very poor condition, the motte fairly flat 1.5m high on the north side and up to 4.0m high on the south side. The scarp which presumably represents the bailey averages 6.0m wide and is from 1.0m to 2.0m high.

The break in the scarp at the north end is probably modern.
1:2500 survey revised. (4)
