     Scheduled Ancient Monument - Wem Castle A motte castle - constructed by William Pantulf between 1135 and 1154. In 1290 it was in ruins and was rebuilt in 1313. In 1538 all that remained visible of the castle was the motte and an encircling ditch. In the mid-19th century the southern portion of the motte was reduced in height and a brick-built retaining wall, aligned east-west, was built across the mound. Now from 1.7m to 3m high. (The ground beneath added "modern" structures in listed but not the newer structures)
