Wark on Tweed Castle - Pastscape

  • Description

    "Earthwork remains of an early 12th-century motte-and-bailey castle, refortified in 1157-61 and in the early 13th century when an octagonal shell keep was raised on the motte and a curtain wall, with towers and a gatehouse were constructed. In the south east corner the outer ward replaced the early bailey defences. Probably dismantled after disarmed in 1639. The visible remains of the castle largely relate to the 16th century building phases as the medieval castle was partly demolished and re-built on numerous occasions...."
