Mr Monkey visits Knaresborough Castle, 19th July, 2007

"A real person couldn't stand still all day like that"

Mr Monkey looking at the Tudor court Mr Monkey looking at mannequins of the two sisters

One day less than a year after he first visited Knaresborough Castle, Mr Monkey visited the Courthouse Museum again. This time he'd been given special permission to take pictures inside. He started by looking at the Tudor court room furniture, which is peopled with mannequins representing a civil case heard in 1602 when two sisters, Anne Lyster and Alice Prentice (both née Roundell) paid 12d and 14d respectively to swap land holdings they'd inherited from their brother. The layout of the court and all the woodwork is genuine; only the costumes and the people are reproductions.
