I visited Tutbury Castle in Staffordshire yesterday.

Wikipedia has its history only back to the Normans, but the hill's been occupied since at least Saxon times and looks defensible spot so undoubtedly older. Ignore the tower on top - it's a folly. There are numerous older sites in the area stretching back to the mesolithic.

The archeological report has some castle plans the could easily be used in KAP: https://archaeologydataservice.ac.uk/archiveDS/archiveDownload?t=arch-2894-1/dissemination/pdf/1407_Tutbury_Castle.pdf

Can anyone suggest who might be here in KAP times, I can't find can't references to it.

I am pretty sure it is supposed to be in Cameliard, right on the border of Bedegraine, at River Dove.

Yep, Savage Mountains, p. 41, lists Tutbury as a Motte and Bailey castle held by a castellan of King Leodegrance.
