Remains of a probable Motte and Bailey castle built in the 12th century with 13th century additions, including a curtain wall and a gatehouse. It was destroyed by Cromwell in 1644. Two sections of wall, the dry rock cut moat, the foundations of four drum towers and a drawbridge are still visible. Excavations have revealed building foundations and a well.
