Aldingham Castle

Aldingham, Cumbria, UK


The first and most visible is Aldingham Motte, which was begun as a ringwork around 1102 by Roger the Poitevin and was later enlarged into a motte and bailey castle by the le Fleming family. It can still be clearly seen atop a sandy cliff overlooking Morecambe Bay. A little further north, and now surrounded by Moat Farm is a small moat which was intended to surround a second manor house. This would have been built in the early 13th century, although whether it was ever used is uncertain as the Lords soon moved further inland as the sea eroded the coastline and the threat of pirates became more severe.
