(1626) CASTELL ABER-SOCH

At 50 ft. above O.D. over-looking a steep drop to the sea on S.E . , and to a small valley on the S.W., has now been almost obliterated; the ditch which was visible on the N.W. in 1903 1 has been almost filled in and the top of the mound levelled for building. The top now measures 110 ft. from S.W . to N.E. , and the ditch is 54 ft. wide. The remains are still recognisable as a motte, but owing to disturbance the dimensions may not represent the original form. Several stone hammers were found when the 19th-century turnpike road was cut through the site .2
