Between 1190,and 1194 it was repaired with a timber structure at the top was built by William the Conqueror in 1068 as a statement of his power over the region.
this building stood for just over a century before being burnt down in one of York's tragic moments, when in 1190 150 were massacred on this site.
Normally at this time of year the steep banks are covered in daffodils but the coldest winter on record has certainly affected the grown of the Daffodil display.
