about

Knaresborough Castle is situated at the top of a large cliff, with a commanding view of the River Nidd and the Forest of Knaresborough. King John took a particular interest in Knaresborough and he often visited during his reign, residing here while hunting in the Forest of Knaresborough. Knaresborough Castle supported the Royalist Cause during the Civil War. After the battle of Marston Moor in July 1644, the castle was besieged. Parliament ordered the castle to be demolished, but the townspeople petitioned Parliament to allow them to maintain it as a prison. Demolition was halted and the Tower was left standing.

Castle on the Crag

(Music and Lyrics Tim Hunter © 2020)

Castle on the Crag, Castle on the Crag

Where the Ravens Roam is a castle that old King John called his home in Knaresborough he sang lots of songs
Castle of the Crag where we still Fly the Flag. Castle on the Crag, Castle on the Crag

King John went hunting in the forest of Knaresborough to slay the beast, bring it home for a feast,

In the Castle on the Crag, Castle of the Crag where we still Fly the Flag, Castle on the Crag, Castle on the Crag.

This is a Royalist Town, Parliament gonna take our castle down, don’t trust those who preach equality, no we’d rather keep the monarchy and stay free.

Can we keep the tower? So, in our darkest hour
we can Fly the Flag, on the Castle on the Crag
Castle on the Crag, Castle on the Crag

No parliament is gonna take this town again, we’ll remain true and stand our ground, on the Castle on the Crag,
Where we still Fly the Flag

Castle on the Crag, Castle on the Crag
