A continuous vault runs E-W over the first floor. There is no sign of a stairway or access to the upper levels but a large gap in the vault at the east end may mark the position of the stairs. Window gaps occur in the south and west walls but are now at floor level. There is a large gap in the east wall. A series of earthworks extend northwards from the castle and a short distance to the northwest is a mutilated motte.
