Skipton castle in North Yorkshire is one of Britain's most preserved medieval castles, maintaining its look today thanks to the repairs done in 1659 by Lady Ann Clifford. It was built in 1090 as an earth and wood, motte and bailey structure but eventually, as a defence against scottish invasions, it was re-built as a formidable stronghold in stone.
Today it is a very popular tourist attraction, but the new wing that was built In 1536, for the wife of Henry Clifford (niece of Henry VIII), Lady Eleanor, is now a luxurious private residence.
Here you can see the Conduit Courtyard, which gets its name from the water supply that was piped into the castle, which terminated in the courtyard.
