A Roman fortified town dating from c. 75 AD, the original wooden structure being replaced by stone in AD 330. Part of the town walls are still seventeen foot high, although they were once twice this height. A motte castle protected by a ditch was built in one corner in the 1060's and the motte can still be seen.

CADW, open all year.
