end rising 5 storeys. Round corner turrets at ground,

window opening at centre. Gargoyle spouts above
segmental bridging arch at W.

Statement of Special Interest
Scheduled monument. An important historical site, though
not one of the most outstanding, as much of its fabric has
been plundered, for example, dated panel moved to doorway
of Market Garden House (see below), on Castle boundary.
Castle belonged to Levingtoun family. Ruinous lectern
dovecot lies to N, also listed and scheduled.
