Scarborough Castle

Scarborough Castle sits high on a cliff top on the coast overlooking the town below, there has been a castle here for over 2,500 years.
The first stone castle wasnt built until the 12th Century by William de Gros. Although the keep has lost the roof and most of two walls it can still be seen from the remains what a magnificent structure it must have been, the keep had been built by Henry the 2nd. Although the castle suffered major damage during the civil war (1642-45) it was also to be damaged again many years later by gunships during World War 1.
