There is no actual castle just a football ground where it was. But a good area for children to play. There are seats for people to sit on.

I’ve grew up in Deddington and enjoyed my visit when it was snowing. I’d possibly not come here alone when it’s not busy there as it’s quite secluded.

Visited here on the way back from husband's driving experience. We had a nice walk but sadly there was no castle at the end of it - not even the usual 'pile of rocks' that my husband calls the rundown buildings we seem to come...More

We stopped by with the hopeful prospect of seeing some remains of the castle. Unfortunately there were none. We took a short walk around the area which was pleasant enough.

With little more above the ground than earthworks, surrounded by trees, a little imagination is required here to see where a castle once stood. It's easy enough to find, and the earthworks are substantial, but there's nothing else, and a football pitch in the grounds...More

Essentially no castle or ruins but information boards indicating 'how the castle was' up to late 1377 are in place by English Heritage. The boards show pictures of the archeological dig in 1977 worth a brief visit but would suggest combining with one of the...More

I stopped here on passing hoping to see remains of a castle but there was nothing there just grass mounds. There were signs with information on what use to be there though. This is a good spot for a walk and have a picnic with...More

Nice to walk round for locals and dog walkers but I wouldn't travel out of the way to visit. No masonry remain, just a grassy edge around the site. I've seen pictures online showing masonry but this must be a nearby site or incorrectly labelled...More
