Caption / Description:

The path back down the motte from the ruins of Clun Castle in Clun, Shropshire.

A motte-and-bailey is a form of castle situated on a raised earthwork and surrounded by a protective fence. Many were built in Britain, Ireland and France in the 11th and 12th centuries, favoured as a relatively cheap but effective defensive fortification that could repel most small attacks.
