Skipsea Castle

Artificial Mound

Skipsea Castle (Artificial Mound) by Johnnyboy The ditch and bank around the mound - probably Norman, but the Brough has always been associated with water - it was separated from the bailey by the lake of Skipsea Mere (now dry except in bad weather,) and only accessible by causeway. Was the siting by a lake significant to the original builders?
