SP 966-579 Bedfordshire England
Odell Castle is a Norman earthwork motte and bailey fortress, founded by Walter de Wahul, count of Flanders. Sadly nothing is known for certain, about the history and the layout of its later fortifications. The castle, with its stone keep was in ruins by the 16th century and later building has obliterated part of the motte and most of the masonry. 9 miles south-east is Bedford Castle.
Odell Castle is located in the village centre, off High Street. 9 miles north-west of Bedford, on the A6-local roads.
The site is visible from the road.
Car parking is by the side of the road, at the church.
