The first castle was a motte and Bailey, possibly with a stone tower. After the death of Llywelyn ap Gryffudd in 1282 the land was held by Edmund Mortimer, one of the Marcher Lords, and a new castle was started nearby but within one hundred years it was falling into ruin. Much of the site was damaged by the construction of a railway cutting in the 19th century.
