This seat of the de Bohun earls of Hereford has an almost complete circuit of curtain walls, parts of which are 14th century, when the two gatehouses were added. In the main, however, the walls are 13th century, with three round or U-shaped towers of that date, and a circular keep on a mound. There is access to the top of the keep and the smaller of the two gatehouses.
