Cropton Castle
Not much too see of Cropton's Motte & Bailey Castle.
This is taken from the 'Motte' (Mound) which rises some 5 metres above the surrounding field.
Immediately to the North is still visible a dry moat, and to the South the brown areas visible here are probably rubble from other buildings clustered around the keep.
