Medieval motte and bailey castle, with a possible double bailey. It is believed to have been built after the conquest in the C11 or C12. It survives as earthworks.

The castle takes the form of a motte and double bailey enclosed by ditches, with external banks. It was built in the 11th or 12th century and is thought to have been built either as a post-Conquest fortification of Ansgot or as a response to the turmoil of King Stephen's reign by Ralph de la Haye, an active supporter of Stephen.
