Shot to pieces in the English Civil War and bombarded by the German Imperial High Seas Fleet in 1914.

Nice set of photos!

The headland can be a bit bleak. When we went it was blowin' a gale and shotting it down…

@Cerdic:
Just a few days later we drove back via Flamborough Head in 65mph winds, three or four metre high waves and lashings of rain and hail.
For the experience we stopped at the cafe out on Flamborough Head which was taking the full force. We had to park BEHIND the cafe before we could open the car's doors. While we were inside the cafe we saw a man blown over while he was trying to take a photograph.

Another example of the destructive streak in the new Model Army. They "slighted" many of the castle we view on our trip in '85.

But Scarborough Castle wasn't slighted. It was already in a state of disrepair before the Civil Wars, then suffered extensive damage during the siege. It was ordered to be slighted but was reprieved.

The German navy bombarded the Castle in WW1 causing considerable damage.
