Site of motte and bailey

Castle Hill is the name given to the once substantial motte and bailey, perhaps double bailey,[1] apparently associated with the then new town of Castle Carlton in the county of Lincolnshire, some 7 miles south-east of Louth, between the villages of North and South Reston[2] (grid reference TF395836).

It was founded in the 12th century by Hugh Bardolf[dubious ]. Only the motte and some ditching remain and they are now overgrown.[1][3]
