Probably a motte, as described above. At the base, on the N, there are indistinct traces of a ditch, separating the motte from a level area extending c.70m northwards by about 50m E-W. It is bounded by natural slopes, which in themselves would not form a good defence, and there is no evidence of artificial scarping; yet this may be a bailey. It is obscured by vegetation, and the cutting of a track through it.
