A fortified manor house

This is Woodsford Castle by the river Frome. Its not a castle but a fortified manor house. You can see by the archways that it dates back to Norman times or very soon after. I wonder what or who the original owners were afraid of. Perhaps the locals of Dorset in those days were a bit less conservative than they are now?
