Clintwood Castle was a tower belonging to the Elliots but nothing of it now remains.
The tower is marked as “Ye Clints” on a map of 1590 which appeared in “An atlas of England and Wales, made by Christopher Saxton”, a book owned by William Cecil, 1st Baron Burghley, and commonly referred to as The Burghley Atlas.
Sheep stells near the site of the tower have been built with roughly-dressed stones that may have come from it.
