Higham Gobion Castle
TL 105-333 Bedfordshire England

Higham Gobion Castle 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.
