Dick Turpin, the infamous highwayman is believed to have escaped the law on many occasions, from his room above the courtyard, jumping onto his ever-faithful Black Bess. The legend of the Teardrop room is a mixture of fact and circumstance. John Robson a royalist was fatally stabbed in a barroom brawl, leaving his betrothed heartbroken. She fled to her room and sobbed uncontrollably, mixing her tears with soot from the fire, which she then painted on the walls. In that same room 300 years later the teardrop symbols still remain.
