History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
As for the tower, it still stands to its full height, a glorious sight in the evening sunlight, with a parapet walk on two levels. Near the tower are remains of a bowling green, garden terrace, and a courtyard wall.
Mining subsidence has rendered the castle unsafe for interior visits, so you will have to be content with viewing this wonderfully evocative building from the exterior.
