Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday, I introduced you to Helmsley Castle which is situated just 3km from Rievaulx Abbey.

Details of the castle can be found on my previous post.

Better seen in the large format by right clicking on NEW TAB.

Here, you can see the East Tower, taken through the doorway of the West Tower.

Robert de Ros, inherited the castle and was Lord of Helmsley from 1258 to 1285. His marriage to Isabel d'Aubigny (heiress to Belvoir Castle) funded the building of the new hall and kitchen, as well as strengthening the castle. He built a wall dividing the castle into north and south sides, with the southern half for the private use of the lord's family in the new hall and this East Tower, and the northern half containing the old hall to be used by the steward and other castle officials.

To get this view was quite difficult for me!
I remember almost kneeling, to capture the East Tower within the archway and to stay steady, without the use of a tripod, was a hard task!

Thank you for your interest, Bev :-)
