Disgrifiad o´r Safle Domen Gastell is an oval enclosure, c.60m east-west by 44m, defined by a bank, up to 2.0m high. Attached on the south is a rather irregular motte, c.25-30m in diameter and 6.1m high, which gives the impression of being secondary to the enclosure. The castle has been much altered by its incorporation into the civic landscape of Welshpool, notably losing its ditches.

The interior of the enclosure has been levelled as a bowling green, with trees planted upon the bank and sundry pavilions constructed.
