Full description

THIS SMALL MOTTE LIES 140M SOUTH OF FELIX KIRK CHURCH. IT HAS BEEN MUCH DAMAGED BY ROAD CONSTRUCTION BUT THE SITE OF A PROBABLE BAILEY IS OCCUPIED BY THE VICARAGE GARDEN. The ROADS CUTTING INTO MOUND HAVE ALSO REMOVED ANY EVIDENCE OF DITCH OR COUNTERSCRAP BANK. THE NARROW FLAT SUMMIT HAS NO EVIDENCE OF STRUCTURES. Form: Earthwork (11/1976) (1)
Norman in origin containing a great hall and living apartments. (2)
Supposed Medieval motte, more likely to be a Bronze Age bowl barrow. (3)
