Nobody seems to be sure what the tower was used for. It does not look as though it was part of the castle. Built circa 1100, it is a sturdy, impressive reminder of Norman architecture . Historians tend to believe it was a watch tower guarding the approach of the town - or maybe it was used to collect tolls.
Surrounded by tall grasses and wild flowers, it is a peaceful and delightful spot. We were the only visitors. The place felt haunted.
