Crockherbtown Lock, Lock 50 of Glamorganshire Canal. Alongside is the boat dock which from 1850 to 1894 housed a working boat weighing machine. Originally erected at Tongwynlais in the 1830s it was later moved to a site near the castle, where it survived until Cardiff Corporation donated it for preservation in 1955.

This castle was built in the 1000s by the Normans, it is on the same site as an earlier Roman fort.
