Newbury Castle is the name of an English

Despite appearing proudly on the town's coat of arms, Newbury Castle doesn't appear to have been built in Newbury, England at all, but four miles away in the village of Hamstead Marshall. There, the mottes of three castles can be found, which would be consistent with the general tactics of siege warfare during this medieval period. Today there is little left to see.
