David: Anna, if you are interested, I’m going to make a visit to my old school next Saturday. Would you like to come?
Anna: Why on earth would I want to visit your old school?
David: Because I know you’re studying the Tudors at the moment — Henry VIII and the reformation — right?
Anna: Yes, and so?
David: Well, I went to school at a place called Kimbolton, in Cambridgeshire. It’s about one hour drive from here if the traffic isn’t too bad.
Anna: And the connection with Henry VIII is…?
David: Henry VIII had six wives — but arguably the most important one historically was Katherine of Aragon, his first wife.
Anna: That’s right. Because he wanted a son to be King after him and he only had a daughter — Mary. He divorced Katherine because she was past child bearing age and he needed to marry again to have a son. The Catholic Pope refused to give him a divorce, so Henry broke away from the Catholic Church, destroyed all the monasteries and steered England towards the protestant church. What on earth has this got to do with your school?
David: When Henry separated from Katherine and married Anne Boleyn — he sent Katherine to a castle — in Kimbolton.
Anna: You’re joking?
David: The headmaster’s office is in the room that was formerly her bedroom. She lived there until she died. After her death her coffin was carried to London — about 60 miles — and people lined the route all the way to say goodbye to her. When I was at school there were plenty of stories about her ghost that still walks the corridors of Kimbolton Castle.
Anna: Is it open to the public then?
David: No, I’m afraid it isn’t. But because I went to school I can go back on special school reunion days. They’re called “Old Kimboltonian Days”. And I can take a guest. There will be a tour. Probably we’ll see a game of cricket in the afternoon and in the evening there will be a dinner dance. What do you say?
Anna: I’m not sure. On Sunday I’m going to Brighton for the day and will need to get up early. Can I think about it? I’ll let you know by tomorrow.
