Twt Hill

Twt Hill is an 11th century earthwork motte and bailey fortress, built by Robert of Rhuddlan. The large motte encased by a ditch still commands the River Clwyd but only traces remain of the fortified bailey. On the mottes exposed side, traces of mortar have been seen, so it may have once supported a stone tower. In 1277 the site was abandoned when King Edward I built Rhuddlan Castle nearby.
