Earthworks, a 30 feet high motte and a large bailey remain of this Norman castle. There are a few traces of the stone walls and the stone keep is no longer standing. The castle was captured and destroyed by the Welsh in 1153, 1189 and 1215. It surrendered to Owain Glyndwr in 1405 and was abandoned soon after.
