On Thursday 26th April 2012 we went to Skipton Castle. It was very cool. We went in the dungeon, it was scary when the guide turned the lights off. We shouted “HELP”. We learnt that they ate vegetable jelly, eugh!
The toilet was just near the kitchen. The poo and wee went straight down into the river. To wipe your bottom you put some moss on a stick and wipe. There was no sink to wash your hands so they wiped them on cloaks that hang in the room. It would have been very smelly!
The walls of the castle were 4 metres thick and they have never been broken by enemies. The castle used to have a seesaw drawbridge, enemies attacking would either be trapped outside or fall into the dungeon. They would fire arrows or pour boiling water on attackers.
What else do you remember from our visit?
