Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

Skipton is called the gateway to The Dales (Yorkshire Dales).

It has a fine castle, Skipton Castle, which is over 900 years old and is one of the most complete and best preserved medieval castles in England. Here, you can see visitors walking towards the gatehouse. In medieval times they would have had to cross a moat and a drawbridge and there would have been a portcullis above the gateway.

As you tour this splendid castle, you notice all kinds of details which were important parts of everyday life. I would recommend that you look at this site which gives some very interesting details about the castle and, by pressing the buttons on the list at the left, you can learn so much about the castle's history, its owners and what is available in modern times.

Have a great week, Bev :-)
