The remains of an 11th century motte and bailey castle, with curtain walls and a great keep dating from 1140. The sallyport, an escape route, can be seen on one wall. The castle was demolished in the 17th century, leaving just the foundations of the keep, the porches of the 13th century hall and a part of the curtain wall.

Open to the public.
