There was a fortress here in the C12, but it was often besieged,
attacked and altered. In the beginning of the C17 a large town
house was begun on the site, but after 1611 the castle was left to decline.
A large part of the stonework was removed for building Holy Trinity Church,
and later the greater part of the remains were swept away for the railway
station on the site. The west curtain wall survives in part, with steep
steps down to the river (end of C13), and fragments of towers of
the C16. AM.
