Remaining earthworks of Denton Castle
|Type||Motte and bailey|
|Condition||Earthworks only remain|
Denton Castle was built after 1088, following the Norman invasion of England, probably by William d'Albini, who linked his estate at Denton to that at Buckenham, where he also built a castle. The motte is around 150 feet in diameter, surrounded by a protective ditch, with an adjacent, horseshoe-shaped bailey. The castle may have been destroyed around 1254.
