Huntington Castle, Huntington - Herefordshire, County of (UA)

Castle remains C13 or earlier. The motte and inner bailey are surrounded by a ditch and outer bailey. Traces of a curtain wall and C13 semi circular tower have survived in a fair condition although they were very overgrown. Work to control vegetation is being carried out by the owner and a new access track has been created. Unstable stonework needs consolidating following unsuccessful attempts to secure funding for the site via Natural England Stewardship schemes.
