Bailey refers to the open area inside a fortress or a castle. It is actually an open courtyard within the walls of the castle. It is also known as ward. During the middle ages this area was used as a space for the castle gardens. Depending on the size of the castle it may have more than a single bailey.

It may have different types of baileys like outer bailey, middle bailey and an inner bailey. Usually these castles are fortified and guarded. This area is also used for exercise, parade and emergency corrals. It is usually situated around the main tower of the motte and bailey castle.
