Henry VIII was a frequent visitor to Ampthill Castle, and it was there that Catherine of Aragon lived from 1531 until divorced in 1533, when she was moved to Kimbolton. The castle was built in the 15th century by Sir John Cornwall, later Lord Fanhope, from ransoms after the Battle of Agincourt. Although the castle is now gone, some indications of castle life remain, such as the local ponds (Westminster pond being one) allegedly built to supply the castle with regular supplies of fish.
