Toot Hill Tothill
TF 419-810 Lincolnshire England

Toot HillToot Hill is a late 11th or mid 12th century earthwork motte and bailey fortress. The western bailey is defended by double wet ditches and surface quarrying has given it a crescent shape. The large roughly circular motte, stands on the west bank of the Great Eau and a low bank and ditch runs round its northern and eastern sides. A series of parallel, V-shaped ditches lie to the west and south and lying between them on the southern side, is possibly the remains of a raised building platform. A mile north-east at Withern is Castle Hill and 2 miles north-west at Castle Carlton is Castle Hill.
