CASTLE HAUGH

The motte is damaged on the side by the River Ribble, and this appears to be the side on which the bailey was situated. However, the rest of the site is incredibly well preserved although hidden by trees. The motte rises to about 25 feet, and the ditch survives on the north, south and east sides of the earthworks. There is a depression in the centre of the motte, suggesting either severe erosion, a demolished building, or quarrying.
