Henry I had a hall or hunting lodge at Mansfield. It was superceded by a new one built at Clipstone by Henry II (Becks moved into old one ?) (3)
Terraced into the hillside are the grass covered foundations of a small structure 7m x 5m but no other features can be positively identified. The site is cut by a sunken road. Outlines of possible buildings on (5), but on estate map of 1861 these appear to be cattle pens. (4)
