Statement of Interest

Scheduled monument. An important historical site, though

not one of the most outstanding, as much of its fabric has

been plundered, for example, dated panel moved to doorway

of Market Garden House (see below), on Castle boundary.

Castle belonged to Levingtoun family. Ruinous lectern

dovecot lies to N, also listed and scheduled.
