Mr Monkey visits Knaresborough Castle, July 20th

"Well, this has been an interesting place to visit"

Mr Monkey outside the Courthouse Museum Mr Monkey looking at the Kings Tower

In the middle of the castle there was a medieval chapel, which became a courthouse when they gave it a second floor in the 1600s. Now it's a museum, and Mr Monkey scampered around learning about the history of Knaresborough and examining the original court furniture. He wasn't allowed to take pictures, though.
