Shropshire SMR record, of possible castle/enclosure of Iron Age or Roman date reads 'Single ditched sub-rectangular enclosure. I Burrow comment 1978. Associated with this enclosure are linear cropmarks of uncertain nature forming either a field system or further enclosures. Among these is a small rectangular single-ditched enclosure with a possible entrance at the W side. The amorphous 100m W/E enclosure was all that was visible on the 1977 AP and was thus all that was plotted by Whimster in 1981. In 1989 a Mrs McCarthy, who was doing research on the Wooton Castle area reported that the field in which the amorphous enclosure lies is marked as Castle Field on the 1838 Tithe Award map, and also on an 1808 estate map. The latter also records fields called Castle Yard Meadow and Castle Yard to the north east. The small rectangular enclosure revealed by subsequent APs, eg taken in 1984, is to the east at c SJ3405.'
The castle place-names can be rejected as referring to a medieval castle on this site.
