    My first visit after cycling by numerous times.
    Skipton Castle is a medieval castle in Skipton, North Yorkshire, England. It was built in 1090 by Robert de Romille, a Norman baron, and has been preserved for over 900 years
    Well worth a visit I am certainly pleased I did.
    Café within the grounds and the staff are brilliant.
    They have a place for bikes but no proper bike facilities to lock bikes - well it is medieval!
