Kimbolton Castle

Kimbolton Castle in Cambridgeshire, is best known as the final home (or prison) of King Henry VIII's first queen, Katherine of Aragon. She was sent here in April 1534 for refusing to give up her status or deny the validity of her marriage. The fenland climate damaged her health, and she died here in January 1536. The building underwent several phases of restoration in successive centuries, ending up as a school.
