Place Wood Ringwork Southwick
SU 635-092 Hampshire England

Place Wood RingworkPlace Wood Ringwork is an earth and timber ringwork and bailey fortress, probably dating from the 11th or 12th century. Standing on a slight spur to the north of a Roman road, the oval earthwork platform is crowned by a defensive bank and encased by a ditch. An adjoining eastern quadrilateral bailey platform is encased by a bank and ditch but its western end is partially destroyed. Here are the brick foundations of a modern park keeper's lodge, with the bailey defences cut by a ha-ha and a park boundary ditch. A mile south is Pinsley Motte.
