Site Description The ruins of an elaborate masonry castle constructed from c.1297 are sited upon what are presumed to be the earthworks of an earlier 'motte and bailey' castle. The castle was partially demolished c.1660.
The surviving remains include up to two lines of additional ramparts enclosing the castle, the total perimeter being c.150-170m in diameter.
The site is greatly affected by landscaping associated with Hawarden Castle Park (NPRN 86614).
