Remains of a motte and bailey castle, licenced in 1314, and adjacent earthworks. The motte is roughly square, with a level top which retains traces of building remains in its southern half. A steep-sided moat surrounded the motte. The bailey lies to the south east and contains a number of earthworks which are believed to represent the remains of buildings and other features. A depression to the east of the bailey is interpreted as the silted remains of a fishpond. Further earthworks, north of this depression, mark the sites of three tofts, part of the medieval settlement of Fleetham.
