Ancient Monument. All that remains is a fragment of the keep on top of what
was a Saxon mound, and some walling lower down. Originally said to have been
built by one of the Earls of Clare. After its alienation it went to the
Barnardistones. In the reign of Charles II it passed to the Elwes of Stoke
until 1825, when it was bought by John Barker of the Priory, in which family
it remained throughout the century.
