Earls Barton Castle

Evie Godfrey

Earls Barton Church is the remains of a medieval motte castle. The castle is unusual because it is so close to a 10th-century church. The castle’s ditch is also Saxon. It is thought to have been the defence for a manor house previously on the site and was re-used in the castle.

Visitors can see the remaining mound and ditches by the All Saints Church in Earls Barton.
