Annesley Castle was a small motte-and-bailey structure in a park about half a mile south-east of Annesley church. Annesley is a pretty village, six-and-a-half miles south-west of Mansfield. It is noted (as Aneslei) in the Domesday book as a settlement worth 40 shillings. The manor was granted by William the Conqueror to a Norman, Ralph Fitz-Hubert, and the Fitz-Hubert family held the manor until 1154.
