Tute Hill Cockermouth
NY 124-308 Cumbria England

Tute HillTute Hill is an early to mid 12th century earthwork motte, possibly founded by Waldeve, son of Gospatric, earl of Dunbar. The steep sided flat-topped ditchless oval mound is the predecessor to Cockermouth Castle but the position of its bailey has been lost. Standing on a plateau, which overlooks the confluence of the Rivers Cocker and Derwent, the earthen motte was previously thought to be a Tumulus, a windmill mound or a natural feature.
