Question from Emma - Whorlton Castle

Does anyone know about Whorlton Castle in North Yorkshire and its connection with Mary Queen of Scots marriage contract to Lord Darnley?

I went there a few weeks ago a gatehouse is really all that is left. There was no information to be found anywhere on this lovely site, the only info was a road sign with the name whorlton.

I came across its connection with Mary QoS in an article on the web but no reference to why there and who was present etc can anyone help with more

Hi Emma

Wikipedia (I know, caution!) has a fairly comprehensive article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whorlton_Castle
It notes that the Countess of Lennox may have written from here to propose the marriage, but that the contract was signed in Stirling
