Lingen motte and bailey castle
Lingen motte and bailey castle
Lingen village has at least been occupied since the Norman period; Lingen gets a mention in the Domesday Book and there is surviving evidence of medieval strip lynchets near the village. The motte and bailey castle here has not been excavated but suggestions have been made for a stone keep, a curtain wall and even a gatehouse of maybe 12th century date. Lingen is close to the strongpoint of the Mortimer dynasty at Wigmore. Not much remains here today but it's a lovely spot.
