Mr Monkey scampered through the entrance, a small, heavily defended door in the Spur, which was added to the castle in the reign of Queen Mary. The original entrance was over a drawbridge on the east side of the castle, and Mr Monkey thought it had probably been more interesting than the new door. Inside the castle, he set off towards the central tower.
