Round Hill Carlton
SE 068-846 Yorkshire England
Round Hill is a late 11th century earthwork motte, founded by Ribald de Rufus. The circular flat-topped motte, retains part of its wide surrounding ditch but the position of the bailey has been lost. The once wet ditches of this timber fortress, would have been fed by the small stream, which still flows passed the motte. 3 miles north-east is Coverham Abbey Gatehouse.
Round Hill is located in Carlton, off Littleside. 22 miles north-west of Ripon, on the A6108.
The site is visible from a public footpath, which passes the motte from the road.
Car parking is by the side of the road.
