Kingsley Castle, also known as Castle Cob, a medieval motte in Kingsley, Cheshire, England. It is listed as a Scheduled Ancient Monument. The motte is a cone shaped mound, 2.8 metres (9.2 ft) high; it has a diameter of 23 metres (75 ft) at the base and tapers to 6 metres (20 ft) at the top. It is artificial and made from black soil.
Historians used to think that the motte was a large barrow. The stone steps and concrete foundations of a summerhouse not contemporary with the castle are excluded from the protection of the scheduling. There have been limited excavations on the site by antiquarians.
