Details Remains of castle, which was surrounded by a deep ditch. Only the circular tower remains of a probable L or Z shaped building. This is now unroofed, and has been utilized as a dovecot, but sufficient architectural details remain to determine its 16th century date. No sign of a ditch, or of a building to the W, but that there has been a substantial structure to the E, since quarried away, is indicated by a rebuilt doorway, and the remains of a stone staircase leading to the second floor of the tower in it's SE arc. Traces of building footings to the S of the tower where two rectangular buildings are shown on the OS 25 inch, probably the remains of modern farm buildings.
