    Wikipedia:
    Nottingham Castle is a ruined castle in Nottingham, the capital of the English county of Nottinghamshire. The castle was built on a natural promontory called Castle Rock with 39-meter-high, steep cliffs on the south and west sides. In the Middle Ages, it was an important royal fortress and occasionally visited the king. Already from the 16th century it decayed gradually and was mostly demolished in 1649. Henry Cavendish, 2nd Duke of Newcastle, later had a mansion built on the estate. This was burnt down in 1831 by insurgents and was obtained by the Dukes as a fire ruin. Later it was rebuilt as an art gallery and museum and is still preserved today
