Castle Hill Laughton

The view looking out from the top of Castle Hill where the outline of the old Saxon and Norman fortification can still be made out (though as it appears to be a private garden you can't walk around it).

Castle Hill is the site of the remains of a motte and bailey castle that dates back to the 5th century AD, and was one of King Edwin of Northumbria's (it was part of that Saxon Kingdom then). His wife, a Kentish princess introduced Christianity to the area by the building of a church on the site of the present church.
