C11 and Cl3 ruins, principally of the collegiate Church of St Mary, and the North
and East curtain walls with East gate and bastions.
The Castle built circa 1070. The church was started afterwards but before 1094.
More building work in early 1170s to 1190s including the keep in 1172. Repairs
of 1216 and afterwards progressive ruin.
The walls are stone rubble, and as it exists now there are ruined walls and foundations
of the church which had a central tower the western arch of which has been rebuilt,
there are remains of a square tower at the west end of the nave. There remains
the curtain walling along the North, North-west, North and North-east with the
gatehouse on the North-east side with 2 rounded towers. Outside the walls on the
north side are store-rooms (known as the Dungeons) in the form of narrow tunnel-vaulted
passages. The keep and other buildings no longer exist. AM.
