In the early middle ages this area was fought over by the Normans and native Welsh. In 1100 an earth and timber castle was on the current site with the current castle dating form 13th and 14th centuries.Willian Marshal of Pembroke and his successors rebuilt the castle from the early 13th century. This is the design we see today.
The unusual medieval design with two joined towers rather than one center tower still stands today. It is possible to climb the stone stairs up to the higher rooms. Firepaces can be seen percehed precariously high up in the walls.
