Tout Hill or Mount Thorold / Turold (Peterborough Castle)
Tout Hill (Touthill) was a medieval motte and bailey castle in Peterborough, dating from about 1070 to 1150 AD.

The mound itself is situated just left of centre in the picture. A description of the mound is given here - LinkExternal link with more information and pictures on the Peterborough City Council website here - LinkExternal link

There are three interpretive panels at the bottom of the mound that give some information about the history of the site. There is also a bit more in - 'History and Antiquities of the Cathedral Churches of Great Britain ..., Volume 3, by James Storer (1814)'; Cathedral Church of Peterborough pages 6 - 7 (Digitized LinkExternal link ).

The arch on the right of the picture is just a folly erected by - W.H.Barlow.D.D. Dean 1906.

This is in the Deanery Garden, occasionally open for public viewing.
