On the 4th February 1569, Mary Queen of Scots and sixty attendants, including her gaoler Knollys, rode into Tutbury Castle. She had been many hours in the saddle and for the first time since her arrival in England, she realised that she was now in prison.
Mary loathed Tutbury. Not only because of what it represented but also because it was cold, draughty and extremely damp – threatening Mary’s already delicate health. She wrote of its miseries in winter that ‘mechante vieille charpenterie’ caused the wind to whistle through her chamber.
