Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

My photograph is again part of our exploration of Knaresborough Castle.

As I said previously, the castle was ordered to be demolished by an act of Parliament as it had been a Royalist stronghold at the time of the Civil War. Of course, there are significant parts still standing but, it could no longer be used as a fortress.

This carved archway was attached to the inner bailey. Its worn stones made a great period border through which to catch a glimpse of the courthouse. The courthouse, within the castle bailey, dates back to the 14th century.

The grounds of the castle, high above the river, are a delight to view. There are many flower beds, benches and walks from which to view the river.

I will add a workshop showing one of the flowerbeds full of spring flowers.

Thank you for your interest, Bev :-)
