This site has been considered by some writers to be a castle but is rejected as such by Spurgeon as glacial mound.

Natural, probably glacial, mound some 50m long displaying definite tail to the NE. Formerly listed as a tumulus (RCAHM 1911). Not an Antiquity. Definitely not a barrow. Very large and set in an area of presumed melt-water chanels (CPAT 1997). (Clwyd Powys Archaeological Trust HER)
