Openings 56 ~ Knaresborough Castle

Knaresborough Castle, near Harrogate in Yorkshire.

A per digital (for me) poor quality photo.

The year…? The clue is in the archway. It was a bright sunny day and we spent some time watching outdoor bowling on the green you can see through the archway.

Knaresborough Castle dates back to the 14th century and is perched high above the River Nidd with excellent views of both Knaresborough and the river valley.

The area around the King’s Tower serves as the focal point for the castle today. The Tower was the height of fashion when it was built in 1307-1312.

    Mike – If you were standing out in the wet and windy weather of the Yorkshire countryside for 700 years, I bet some bits might have fallen off by now! 😉

    Tilly – The old buildings are nice to look at, but I don’t fancy the living conditions of their heyday.
