>The earthworks remain of the medieval motte and bailey castle at Castle Green. The motte is 5m high and 15m in diameter and it is surrounded by a ditch with a counterscarp bank. To the south of the motte are the remains of another flat-topped mound, rising 4m above ground level and measuring 40m in diameter and partly surrounded by a ditch.
