Landmarks[edit]

Coupland Castle is situated in the village and is a Grade I listed building.[1] It is a tower house rather than a castle which was probably built at the end of the 16th century. The tower has three storeys with an attic on top and a small projecting tower carried up the south wall.[1]

A date stone over a fireplace in the tower engraved GW 1615 MW is thought to represent George and Mary Wallis owners at that date.[2] It has been added to over the years and was restored in the 19th century, and in 1820 was extended when a three bayed two storied house was built adjoining the tower[2][3]
