Pontefract Castle

UK»England»Yorkshire»Pontefract Castle

Pontefract Castle: The castle was largely demolished but the remains of the castle, and the underground magazine chamber, are open to visitors. There is also a working blacksmith on site. The cellars of the 11th-century great hall were used as a magazine (military store). You can visit the underground magazine cut out of the solid rock and see where Civil War prisoners carved their names into the cell walls. Also said to be the most haunted castle in Yorkshire.
