A small Pele tower, only 30 foot square but three storeys high, which was built in the 16th century. There were other buildings attached originally but these have all been destroyed. The tower was twice captured during the Jacobean uprisings of the 18th Century. It is derelict inside.
Across the road is the church of St Cuthbert (below) which is built on a low motte. The bailey probably lies below the cemetery.
English Heritage, open all year.
