Mr Monkey at Blackness Castle

"He did like breaking things, that Cromwell"

Before he left Blackness, Mr Monkey scrambled up a small hill to see if he could get a good view of the castle. When Cromwell did the same thing in 1650, there was a chapel here, so he knocked it down and placed a battery of cannon in the right place to bombard and capture the castle. Mr Monkey wondered what the chapel had looked like before Cromwell knocked it about, then ran off to join his humans at the car.
