Description

'The important historic site of a castle built by William the Conqueror in 1068 following the Norman invasion of York. Baile Hill is a man-made earth mound and is the only remaining feature of what was known as the Old Baile, a wooden motte-and-bailey castle.It is believed the castle was not in regular use for long. By the 13th century it was in the hands of the Archbishop of York, and by around 1340 part of the York City Wall had been built along the sides, incorporating the existing ramparts and ditch. The Old Baile was used mainly for grazing and recreation activities, particularly archery during the medieval period, although in 1644 during the Civil War, Baile Hill was used as a royalist gun emplacement.'
