Hornby and Gressingham
HORNBY 20A - Castle Stede
Castle Stede, Hornby in Lancashire.
The photo shows the rampart and ditch on the south side of the long oval bailey from this medieval motte and bailey castle. A modern causeway can be seen cutting through the bailey, but the conical motte is on private land and is obscured by the trees. This late 11th century motte and bailey fortification was one of several established in the Lune Valley to control movement across the river. Castle Stede is one of the best medieval motte and bailey castles in Lancashire.
