Motte and bailey castle

Motte and bailey castle

Wigmore Castle, The outer bailey housed stables, granaries and other storage buildings. The inner bailey was defended by an H-shaped gatehouse, a deep, double ditch and a curtain wall, which includes four surviving towers, and was the main residential area of the castle. One corner of the great hall still survives. Above this loomed the keep, with massive walls and a tall round tower set on a motte.
