Looking towards the west end. There was originally an upper gallery below the rose window with access from the bailey wall. After falling out of use as a chapel, the building was adapted for other uses including as a coach house and a farm building.

Until the mid 1950s when Skipton Castle came into ownership of the Fattorini family the building was split into two floors, with cows being housed on the ground floor and a domestic building abutting the east end.

The castle was originally a motte and bailey castle built in 1090 by Robert de Romille. In 1310 Edward II granted the castle to Robert Clifford who was appointed Lord Clifford of Skipton and Guardian of Craven.
During the English Civil War the castle was the only Royalist stronghold in the north of England until December 1645.
