#54 (02.23.12) The Castle

Clitheroe has its own castle, “one of the smallest Norman Keeps” in England, apparently.  It’s still one of the highest buildings around, though, because of its perch at the top of the town.

It has some sort of history involving an attack by Cromwell, and Royalists hiding in the castle who promised not to attack the town in exchange for food.

I guess I should know more about this, but really, I just see it and immediately hear Fetchez La Vache.
