Higham Gobion Castle
TL 105-333 Bedfordshire England
Higham Gobion Castle is an 11th century earthwork motte and bailey fortress, founded by the Gobion family. A small motte encased by a ditch, stands in the centre of a very large triangular ward, which is extended on its south-west angle. Built on a marshy site and defended by substantial ramparts, the earthworks may now represent, a later Medieval fish farm complex. 3 miles south-east is Pirton Castle and 14 miles north is Bedford Castle.
Higham Gobion Castle is located north of Higham Gobion, off the A6. 8 miles north of Luton, on the A6.
The site is visible from a public footpath, which runs past the castle from the road.
Car parking is by the side of the road.
