Castle Motte at Hamstead Marshall Park
Castle Motte at Hamstead Marshall Park
One of three castle mottes in the park. Held by John Marshal for Empress Matilda during the civil war of Stephen's reign, it was besieged for two months in 1153. John's son, William, was taken as hostage but survived to serve four kings and to become a regent of England and was still leading an army at the age of 70, when his army won the Battle of Lincoln for Henry III.
