    D81_2771The Toot and moat park.jpg

    This small pasture area at Shenley Church End is a scheduled ancient monument because in 1239 AD it was a moated motte and bailey castle, home to the family of Hugh, Earl of Chester. The motte and bailey castle consisted of an earth-built mound (the motte) normally topped with a timber tower, standing in a flat fortified enclosure (the bailey).

    Refreshments
    There are no facilities on site but there are a range of pubs and shops in Shenley Church End about 10 minutes’ walk away to the east.
