TL2471 : Castle Hill, Huntingdon

taken 5 years ago, near to Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, Great Britain

Castle Hill, Huntingdon
Castle Hill, Huntingdon
The presence of a Norman castle of motte-and-bailey construction on this site is evidenced by the earthworks seen here. This image shows the area bounded by the outer walls (i.e. the bailey) which rose steeply from near the bank of the River Ouse beyond the horizon. The mound on which the actual fortress stood (i.e. the motte) lay in the opposite, north-western direction. See TL2471 : Display Board of Huntingdon Hill Motte and Bailey Castle for a reconstruction of how the site once looked.
