The Great Siege of Scarborough Castle was a major conflict for control of one of England’s most important stone fortresses during the English Civil War (1642–1651), fought between the Roundheads or Parliamentarians, and the Royalists loyal to King Charles I (reigned 1625–1649). In February 1645, Parliamentarians laid siege to the castle. For five months, they bombarded it, destroying most of the keep, and engaged in bloody fighting before the defenders finally surrendered.
