The castle was a timber motte and bailey fortress. Built by the Gobion family, from which the castle and neighboring town derive their name, sometime after the Norman Invasion of 1066. Built in a marshy site, it encompassed a large triangular area. A small motte was located within the triangle, and the site was defended by substantial ramparts.
