Skipton Castle is one of the most complete and well preserved medieval castles in England, and withstood a three year siege by the Roundheads during the Civil War. Oliver Cromwell ordered the roofs to be removed in 1645, but these were allowed to be replaced ten years later by the owner, Lady Anne Clifford as long as they were not strong enough to withstand canon. Inside there is a small Tudor courtyard and the Conduit Court with its yew tree planted in 1659 to mark the completion of the restoration work.
