Saturday 14th July 2018: More Castle

Saturday 14th July 2018: More Castle

More Castle is one of many motte and bailey castles built in this area by the Normans following the Conquest in 1066. The Normans quickly formed a network of timber castles across this landscape, to assert their authority on the locals and to keep a watchful eye for Welsh raids from the west. This visit will look at the castle and the adjacent village and church. Meet at 2.15pm at Lydham Village Hall (NGR SO 336 909).
