ALMELEY CASTLE

A motte with traces of earthworks and fish ponds lies south of the church, near a footpath. It is thought to have been constructed in the middle of the 12th century during the Civil War. It may have had a stone tower.

A second damaged motte, Oldcastle Twt, is half a mile north west and can be reached by a footpath (photos at bottom).
