As the English Heritage website says, "The striking twin-towered 14th-century gatehouse of this castle, later the focus of a Civil War siege and battle, survives amid impressive earthworks." It is quite impressive on the top of a hill. It is free to visit - at any reasonable time - though the roadsigns may be a bit misleading. There is a car park. If you happen to be passing, as we were, on a lazy Sunday afternoon, it makes a good break and interesting diversion.
