Horse Brass: Skipton Castle

Horse Brass: Skipton Castle

$9.95

Located in Skipton, North Yorkshire. This castle, built in the 12th century by Robert de Romille, is one of the very few castles to have had the scars of Civil War damage promptly erased after the Reconstruction of 1660. After serving as a rallying-point for the Royalist forces beaten at Marston Moor in July 1644, Skipton’s garrison under Colonel Sir John Mallory fought off its Parlimaentarian besiegers until December 1645 and was badly damaged in the process. Today it stands as a beautiful architectural marriage between an unusually attractive country town and the Industrial Revolution and has been fully restored along with the Holy Trinity Church with which it is associated.
