Today I took a little drive out to see the remains of the Motte and Bailey Castle at the village of Castle Camps near Haverhill.


Countryside at Castle Camps.


Earthworks of the Medieval Village alongside the castle.


The ditch and bank around the Bailey.

The defences would have been pretty spectacular 900 years ago.

An information board at Castle Camps.

Castle Camps Church is set within the Bailey.

The large house on the right is private and occupies the interior of the large Motte.



A trig point near the Castle at 126m above sea level.
