Description
Tomen-y-Rhodwydd is a ditched motte, between 38 and 42m in diameter and between 4.9 and 7.8m high. It stands on the north-east of a crescentic bailey, approximately 57m from east to west by 46m, defined by a bank and ditch. There is a continuous counterscarp around both motte and bailey, the whole work occupying an area approximately 118m by 90m.

The castle's construction is recorded in 1149 and its destruction in 1157.
