Richmond Castle

Richmond Castle

Built by the Normans as part of their campaign of "harrying" the north, the magnificent Richmond Castle dominates the hilltop market town of Richmond in North Yorkshire.

Perched on a rocky outcrop overlooking the River Swale, the castle has a long history (including a period as a prison for conscientious objectors during the First World War).
