|Padeswood Mound, Leeswood
|Mold Rural; Bryn y Castell
This site has been considered by some writers to be a castle but is rejected as such by Hogg and King in 1970. However in Castellarium Anglicanum (1983) King puts it in his possible category though he write probably natural. Clwyd Powys Archaeological Trust records two mounds here the first described as a 'Large circular mound 50m in diameter almost certainly natural' and the second at SJ27176199 as a Bronze Age Round Barrow and add 'Large oval mound on Mold Golf Course is certainly natural - a moraine formed of gravel and pebbles (E.Davies 1949, 247). Considered a possible medieval motte by Spurgeon (Manley, J, Grenter, S & Gale, F, 1991, pp171).'
