Apparently natural flat topped mound scarped by stream on its southern edge (OS 1972). Formerly noted as possible motte by RCAHM 1911. (Clwyd Powys Archaeological Trust HER)

In the grounds, and at the back, of Coed y Maen. A low mound, which may be the remains of a larger earthen structure; but it is too dilpidated to admit of classification. (RCAHMW 1911)

Gatehouse Comments

Does not seem to ever have really been suggested as a castle but can certainly be rejected as one.
