Wyberts Castle

Wyberts Castle site

The Wyberts Castle lies close to the medieval village center.

It has earth ramparts and a moat that has filled in over the years but which is still quite marshy.

There is a causeway across the moat on the south side, but this is probably a modern crossing.

Originally, the moat would have encircled the whole site, with a bridge crossing it on the north side near the road.

Wyberts Castle, which is thought to date from Norman times, would have been defended by a wooden palisade on top of the ramparts with a strong tower, the forerunner of the castle keep, within.

Currently, there is no public access to Wyberts Castle.
