Bury Mount
Bury Mount
A Scheduled Ancient Monument Bury Mount is the remains of motte and bailey earthwork. Possibly constructed mid 12th century it was restored in 2008 with an access ramp. Documentary sources from the 14th and 19th centuries suggest it may have been of unusual construction where a stone tower was set within the motte and the entrance to the castle was gained via a tunnel through the motte into the tower. If this is correct it is a very rare survival of the type.
