Details Site of castle. It is depicted on the OS 1st edition map on which it is annotated as 'Remains of'; it appears to have had a courtyard in the centre. A rectangular pecked enclosure adjoins it on the S but whether this is the building mentioned by ONB as 'part of the wall on the N side' is not quite clear. Two other buildings are shown to the north. The site is now occupied by a farm cottage: the 2nd edition OS map shows what appears to be a pair of cottages, the location annotated as the site of the castle. No remains of the castle were seen at the site.
