Just back from my holiday in Yorkshire.
This is Helmsley Castle, a former home of the Roos or Ros family.


The last two pictures are a model showing the castle at the height of its power. Note the large barbicans at each end, one so large it might also be called an outer ward.

The 9th Baron Ros was active in the Wars of the Roses:

while Edward III made a state visit here in the 14th century.

Coincidence as I am painting some Roos WoR battle at the moment. And Wiki spells the name Ros which is unusual although spellings of names might not have been set in stone in this period.
Nice pictures by the way.

@ de Ligne:
Spellings of many names sometimes vary in English sources.

Thank you both!
