Radcliffe Moat Langthwaite
SE 555-069 Yorkshire England
Radcliffe Moat is probably an early to mid 13th century fortified manor house, founded by the de Langthwaite family. The large trapezoidal platform, is encased by the remains of a waterlogged moat, which is linked to Langthwaite Dike from the south. The island is encased by an inner bank and its surface is irregular but there are no visible building platforms. The northern inner bank and the north-east angle of the moat are under a railway embankment. The successor to Castle Hills Langthwaite, the site is heavily overgrown and is best viewed in winter. 8 miles south-west at Mexborough is Castle Hill.
Radcliffe Moat is located south-east of Adwick-le-Street, off the Great North Road. 4 miles north of Doncaster, on the A638.
The site is visible from a dismantled railway line.
Car parking is by the side of the road.
