The late 13th century castle of the de Chaworths has a small square inner ward with four tall round corner towers. The east side has remains of domestic buildings and a projecting chapel and backs onto a steep drop to a river. The other three sides are enclosed in a semi-circular outer wards with D-shaped towers and a large gatehouse at the south end. This gatehouse was rebuilt after an attack by Owain Glyndwr in 1403.  There is access to several tower tops and both  curtain wall-walks.
