The Knapp, Castle Pulverbatch, Shropshire
The motte and bailey site at Castle Pulverbatch, known as the Knapp, dates from the 11th century and was by the Normans, looking out for Welsh attack, as a strategic vantage point along the Shrewsbury- Bishop's Castle road . It is common land and over the years has been used for innumerable picnics, community gatherings and children's play. It is now classified by English Heritage as an ancient monument and nature reserve. There are excellent views of the Stretton Hills and the Wrekin.
