The Hewelsfield Motte is a roughly circular mound, thought to be a medieval motte built soon after the Norman conquest of England. It is located about 80 metres (87 yd) southwest of St. Mary Magdalene's church at Hewelsfield, in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, England. There is no evidence of any masonry structure. There are the remains of a ditch around its base, and other banks and ditches nearby may indicate the existence of a bailey.[1]
