The ruins of a 16th or 17th century bastle lie in the gardens of Low Angerton House. It was a rectangular building but only the western end stands now, up to 2.5m high. It is quite an unusual building in this part of the county as most are found further west, towards the Scottish border. This is a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
