Shoesmith suggests in the 1996 edition of his book that there are remains of fortified site under present farm. This site does not appear in the much revised 2009 edition.

Gatehouse Comments

Isolated from settlement. Overlooks crossing of small stream. Unlikely castle site, if fortified probably just homestead moat. It may be taken that Shoesmith's silence on the site in 2009 as a rejection of it as a fortified site.
