A Norman castle located near the town of Rhuddlan. Twthill castle is built to a 'motte and bailey' design and was erected in 1073. Only the Motte mound remain today, standing 12 metres high with a maximum diameter of 80 metres, although impressions of the Bailey can been seen in the surrounding fields. Much of the site has degraded due to the sandy soil conditions.
