(ST 67 02) The Domesday Book (1086) mentions a castellum or castellet in "Ness", (probably Sharpness) (Clark 1884). (PastScape)

Gatehouse Comments

This is usually assumed to be Berkeley Castle and is doubtful as a separate castle near modern Sharpness, however note the possible castle suggested at Nass Point on the other side of the Severn estuary in Lydney parish.
