A motte with traces of earthworks and fish ponds lies south of the church, near a footpath. It is thought to have been constructed in the middle of the 12th century during the Civil War. It may have had a stone tower.
A second damaged motte, Oldcastle Twt, is half a mile north west and can be reached by a footpath (photos at bottom). The motte has a diameter of 125 feet at the base and is 18 feet high at its highest point and is separated from the bailey on its north side by a ditch. It may have been the precursor to Almerley Castle.
