This is NOT an official Lego site

This formidable Yorkshire manor-house was begun in 1379 by Lord Richard le Scrope, Chancellor to Richard II. It's powerful construction by master-mason John Lewyn with portcullis at every entrance from the courtyard and two in the gatehouse, and substantial rectangular towers at each corner, withstood a seige by Parliamentarians for over a year in 1644-5 before surrendering. Mary, Queen of Scots, was imprisoned here in 1568-9.
