Site Description


NAR SM80SE18

1. Function and date uncertain, O.S. say 'Probably lesser castle of the 14th century.' Rectangular 2 storey, rubble, quasi-painted obtuse angled arches. Vault below corbel table. (possibly almshouse or Nunnery.)

2. Ruins of a massively constructed two storeyed building, about 6.1m by 4.5m, with walls 1.0m thick.

4. Ruin of late medieval first-floor hall. Reputedly a nunnery, but without historical proof. More positively referred to in 1715 as having been an almshouse. Also referred to on OS plans as a castle.
