SK 258-075 Warwickshire England

Seckington Castle Seckington Castle is an 11th century earthwork motte and bailey fortress, founded by the Earl of Meulan or his son, Robert, earl of Leicester. The large conical motte, is encased by a wide ditch and to the south, its crescent shaped bailey, is also defended by a rampart, with a wet ditch. The south-east bailey entrance, of this well preserved earth and timber castle, is probably the original. 4 miles south-west is Tamworth Castle and 9 miles north-east is Ashby-de-la-Zouch Castle.
