Motte and earthworks with stone ruins dating from the 13th and 14th centuries. The first castle was built in c.1130 and was rebuilt in stone at the end of the 12th Century. It was lived in until the 16th Century, but probably not put to use again until the Civil War when it was badly damaged by cannon fire. Towards the end of the 17th Century much of the stone was removed to build a manor house nearby.

On public land near the church.
