Possible motte ploughed out before 1967. Castlebeck place-names in the area. (Jackson)
Situation: The site lies c. 540m north of Linglands Farm, at the base of the scarp forming the edge of Cloughton Moor.
Preservation: The site is preserved as an earthwork under permanent pasture.
Description: The feature comprises a bowl-shaped mound entirely surrounded by a dry ditch. Despite common interpretation as a possible motte, its situation in a landscape abounding with tumuli renders identification problematic, the feature seeming more likely to be a barrow. (Creighton 1998)
Moated mound of uncertain date located 540m north of Linglands Farm. Now descheduled. (PastScape)
