In a field to the south west of the church is a round castle dating from the 13th century. The two storeys which remain are joined by a staircase within the wall, and the first floor has the remains of a fireplace.

In a field to the south west of the church is a round castle dating from the 13th century. The two storeys which remain are joined by a staircase within the wall, and the first floor has the remains of a fireplace. It stands in the middle of a roughly square enclosure surrounded by a wall and moat. Nothing is known of its history, though it is traditionally known as "The Bishop's Chair or Pulpit".
