Coppenhall Gorse
SJ 906-203 Staffordshire England

Coppenhall GorseCoppenhall Gorse is a large 13th century fortified earthwork, founded by the Bagots. The rectangular raised platform of a probable manor house, is encased by a large moat. Most of the obvious surrounding earthworks are the dams, which were used to contain this moat. The dense cover of trees, makes it is best viewed in winter. A mile south-west is Littywood Manor and 2 miles north is Stafford Castle.
