Locale Oxford Castle

Oxford Castle, or mound, was the site of the castle built in 1071 shortly after the Norman conquest. The castle was of a motte and bailey design with the bailey being located where Oxford Prison was later built. Only the mound of the motte and St George's Tower now remain. Interestingly the city walls predate the castle.
