A reconstructed layout (see plan) by comparison with the fortified
houses of Bolton Castle (SE 09 SW/ 2) and Bodiam Castle (TQ 72 NE/1). (3)

Extant remains of the 14 c Palace consist solely of the former
external walling (as delineated) now surrounding a 20c formal
garden, but formerly enclosing the original Inner Court. The walls,
which are well preserved, stand to a max height of 18.0m and exhibit
much architectural detail of the 14c and 15c with later inserts
of a minor nature. The 20c "Bishops Manor" remains the residence
of the Bishop of Southwell. The modern, and earlier fabric, is
maintained by the Church. (4)
