Whilst running past the castle - perhaps muse on King Charles I's imprisonment there:-
"In 20th March 1648, Charles planned to lower himself by a length of rope from his bedchamber window, which overlooked the courtyard of the castle.
However, when Charles attempted to climb through the window, rather embarrassingly, he could not fit through, forcing the attempt to be abandoned."
