Marshwood Castle, Marshwood - Dorset (UA)

The site comprises a rectangular earthwork enclosure with a moat (partly filled). There are substantial remains of the internal ramparts and the motte. These masonry structures require consolidation and careful on-going management. The masonry is precarious and currently being eroded by both stock and vegetation.
