History

A cattle-pound probably of the C18, formed by walling off a part of the castle moat. It clearly post-dates any serious occupation of the castle in a military sense, and the subsequent filling in of the drawbridge section of the moat to form a causeway. It may be broadly contemporary with other cattle pounds such as Manorbier or Castlemartin (the latter dated 1780).

Exterior

An enclosure of rubble stonework, approximately oval, the wall being about 2 m in height. The W entrance-turret forms one side. A gate at the W side.

Reasons for Listing

Listed for Group Value with Llawhaden Castle and as an old cattle-pound.
