Possible Early Castle
Situation: The NGR is approximate, based on place-name evidence.
Preservation: No extant remains (see below).
Description: Marginal place-name evidence suggests the possible existence of a now vanished early castle site at Crofton. The name ‘Castelgate’ is recorded in the 12th century Nostell Chartulary, although there is no evidence of any such site on the ground. (Creighton 1998)
