Skipton Castle

During The English Civil War (1642 - 48 ) Skipton Castle was held by the Royalist, Sir John Mallory. With a garrison of three hundred men he held out for three years against a Parliamentary siege finally surrendering in 1645. Oliver Cromwell regarded Skipton Castle as one of the most serious threats to his campaigns in the North and as a result it was slighted, rendering it indefensible. Between 1657 - 58 Lady Anne Clifford was granted permission to repair the castle with the provison that it would no longer be capable of a serious defence.

John Nevison (1639 - 4 May 1684) (also known as William Nevison) was one of Britain's most notorious highwaymen, a gentleman-rogue supposedly nicknamed Swift Nick by King Charles II after a renowned 200 mile dash from Kent to York to establish an alibi for a robbery he had committed earlier that same day. The ride is often wrongly attributed to Dick Turpin, though there are suggestions that the feat was actually undertaken by one Samuel Nicks.
