Notes about this historic site

1 Stable buildings were constructed in Castle Street in 1768-71. The stable is sandstone built, two storeys high, seven bays wide with an E-shaped plan. The central pedimented bay projects slightly and has a window and arched opening. Other windows have rectangular leaded lights. The roof is hipped and covered with old tiles. This building is now used as a ticket office.

3 Archaeological Evaluation in advance of the construction of a new ticket kiosk south of the castle stables located the remains of Castle Street. A probably truncated series of 17th/18th century street surfaces overlaid a late Medieval make up layer which itself sealed earlier features that were not investigated. Unlikely that development proposals will have any significant effect on the surviving remains.
