was one I could not turn down."

A Day at Warwick Castle - Rhys Parfitt (14)

Nagty student at Warwick Castle"A couple of friends and I decided to visit the dungeons first, as we had been given a talk by the "executioners" the night before and were interested to see what he was up to. After he "chopped my head off" in imitation of an execution, we descended into the gloomy murks of the torture chambers where hidden evils lay"( more)
