A siege castle – a huge earthwork from which Henry's forces could fire their catapults and other weapons into the castle – was constructed on the south-west side of the Severn valley in 1102. De Belleme was imprisoned for the rest of his life following his defeat. (The siege castle earthworks can still be climbed across the river from Bridgnorth Castle. Pan Pudding Hill, as it is known today, is where Time Team brought in a re-enactment society to demonstrate the use of the perrier, a medieval siege catapult.)
