An interesting ruin with several remains of the buildings from the 12th and 14th century. There are artists impressions of the buildings before becoming ruins! You can download an audio tour from the English Heritage website.

Worth popping in if your passing. Don't make a day of it as it's only a small place. Nice to have this kind of history in the village.
