After lunch, Mr Monkey made Mr Rik drive up to the top of a nearby hill called Mow Cop, which is topped by Mow Cop castle. This was built in 1746 as a summerhouse, disguised as a ruin, to improve the view from Rode Hall.
There's a page about Mow Cop castle at the Mow Cop Interactive history website.
