1. The Holy Grail Marker
Inscription. Defeat at the castle seems to have utterly disheartened King Arthur ... The ferocity of the French taunting took him completely by surprise and Arthur became convinced that a new strategy was required if the quest for the Holy Grail were to be brought to a successful conclusion. Arthur, having consulted his closest knights, decided that they should separate, and search for the Grail individually. Now, this is what they did. No sooner....

{Blah-blah blah blah blah. Does anybody actually read these things?}

On so on April 9th, 1975, the Holy Grail (yes, the real one, not some cheap tarted-up imitation) was found in the vicinity of this here Castle.
