This is a classic 'motte and bailey' castle. You can see the more easily defended, round keep on top of its mound or motte to the left. The bailey was a larger area where there were outbuildings such as stables and where local people and animals could take refuge when the area was under attack. Dudley Zoo was constructed among the woodland surrounding the castle. It opened to the public in May 1937 and is still there today (2013).
