Brinklow Castle

Brinklow Castle is a double motte and bailey earthwork within the village of Brinklow.

It was a strategically important site, associated with William the Conqueror’s campaigns in 1069 as it sits on a commanding position over the Roman Fosse Way, a key medieval route. The motte is moated and it has an inner and outer bailey and a central causeway leads from Brinklow Broad Street to the motte.
