Clough Castle is situated in the village
of Clough County Down on the road from Ballynahinch
to Newcastle about three miles from
the village of Dundrum.
The castle is a typical example of an Anglo
Norman motte and bailey castle with a stome tower added at a later
date, the mound which rises to about 25 feet (7.62 Metres) is
surrmounted by a stone tower standing off centre on the mound,
accompanying the tower there may have been a large wooden hall,
excevations in 1950 indicated that this may have burned down,
some time in the 15th century the stone tower was enlarged to
become a tower house.
