Built on a Motte, the Bedford Castle that acted as the administrative centre and the headquarter for a number of Sheriffs in Buckinghamshire, is now known as the Bedford Castle mound with only a brownish mound of its ruins remaining. The castle played significant part in the First Barons’ War and the Civil war and after the turmoil between Henry III and Falkes de Breaute, the castle was taken down on the order of the king, henceforth forming the Bedford Castle Mound. What you will see is the base of the Motte on which the castle was made. It is considered as a Scheduled Monument and spans 49 meters at the top and 25 feet in height.
