Raby Castle

We had a great time at Raby Castle today finding out what life was like for all the different people who lived and worked in the castle. We were met as we got off the bus by our tour guides, who took us up to the castle along the main drive. We all saw the moat, and we found out about the disgusting things that used to be thrown in to keep people from attacking. After we went through the gates, looking up at the ‘murder holes’ and avoiding the spikey portcullis, we saw the bell tower that was used to warn people of any invaders. Even after we had passed the first wall we saw that there was another wall that was up to 20ft thick!
