Spring Close

Spring Close is a large open space which contains the earthworks of Burwell Castle. The walls of the castle are no longer standing. The area was purchased by the Parish Council for the village in 1983 to protect it from inappropriate use and is maintained as an amenity site for local residents. The area has many access points with easily accessible gates in Mandeville, behind the church, and Spring Close, the road which runs alongside the open land.
