Aldford Castle is an outstanding 12th century stone motte and bailey fortress which was founded by Richard de Aldford. The large motte is surrounded by a wide wet ditch and stands within the remaining ramparts and wet ditches of a triangular bailey. Excavations have been carried out on the flat top motte, and the foundations of a shell keep and a D shaped tower were unearthed.
