One of the original Ministry signs remains on the inside of Rosamund’s Tower in the Outer Ward of Pickering Castle in Yorkshire. The tower is first known by this name in 1535.

The castle was placed in State Guardianship in 1926.

A similar sign can be found at Hadleigh Castle in Essex. Contrast this with the sign at Warkworth Castle in Northumberland.
