A long squat mound no resemblance to a motte. No ditch no bailey. Probably a natural mound altered to form part of a garden mound 35m long, 12m wide, max 3m high. Considered a possible motte by Spurgeon (Manley, J, Grenter, S & Gale, F, 1991, pp171). (Clwyd Powys Archaeological Trust HER)
An oval mound 35m long, aligned WNW - ESE, and 12m wide located 100m WSW of Maesmor Hall. It is set within the grounds of the hall c. 70m SW of the present course of the Afon Ceirw. There are signs that it was surrounded by a ditch, and there may have been a bailey, but its location has led to the disappearance of both of those features. (Scheduling Report)
