Newington Bagpath Castle Mound
ST 817-948 Gloucestershire England

Newington Bagpath Castle Mound Newington Bagpath Castle Mound is a medieval earthwork motte or possibly a small stone tower. Standing against the steep banks of the Little Avon River, the low flat-topped mound is surrounded by a wide ditch, that ends at the escarpment. There is no trace of a bailey but immediately to the north is a small rectangular building platform. The northern ramp across the ditch could be contemporary with later quarrying and the steep western side of the ditch could indicate the original entrance point. A pit dug into the centre of the mound displayed rubble and possible vaulting and to the north-west is the disused Church of St Bartholomew. Across Hay Bottom is Lasborough Castle and 4 miles east is Beverstone Castle.
