1/110 Remains of Huntington
Castle remains. C13, or earlier origins, repaired in 1403, abandoned
in 1460 (although one tower still in use as prison in 1521). Sandstone
rubble. Earthworks consist of a motte 40 yards in diameter and three feet
high with an oval inner bailey to the north-east and a crescent-shaped
outer bailey also to the north-east. The inner bailey is approached by a
causeway on the east side which probably marks the site of a former gate-
house. The bailey was enclosed by a curtain wall; one fragment of this
wall survives to the west about 20 feet high. Also part of a C13 tower
remains to the north with a small chamber in the adjoining section of
curtain wall. This chamber has traces of a window and two small recesses
in the west wall. In the south part of the tower are the remains of a stair-
case or corridor. The castle was in the possession of the Braose, Bohun and
Stafford families during the Middle Ages. Ancient Monument County no 98.
