This picture was taken on June 4th, 2013, in the Castle in Skipton. More specifically, in the Conduit Court. The tree is, according to the paper with sketches we were given as a guide, a Yew, that is over 9 ft (aka more than 2. 7 meter) and was planted in 1659 by Lady Anne Clifford after her restoration of the Castle.
The Castle is claimed to be one of the oldest, most complete and best preserved mediaeval castles in England. All that I can say, is that is was nice, big and not really furnished. And I’m glad that I don’t live in those cold stone buildings in the winter.
If you want to read more about the trip, like where we were, you can read the entry I wrote over on the other blog I have, right here.
