Whittington Motte, St Michael the Archangel ChurchWhittington Motte is a late 11th century earthwork motte and bailey fortress, which now supports the church and churchyard of St Michael the Archangel. A natural hillock has been scarped into a low oval motte, with the remaining platform becoming a crescentic-shaped bailey. The church, with its graveyard has considerably altered the castle and there are now no visible remains of any encasing banks or ditches. 3 miles south is Chapel Hill, Arkholme.
