A former manager of Castle Howard has appeared in court charged with a second set of alleged sexual offences.
Simon Howard, 65, is now also charged with two counts of attempted rape against a girl and indecently assaulting her.
These alleged offences are said to have occurred between June 2003 and February 2004.
Mr Howard was already facing charges of indecent assault and incitement to gross indecency against an under-age girl in 1984.
The new charges were heard at York Crown Court today (Tuesday). He is yet to enter pleas to the charges.
Judge Simon Hickey adjourned the case for a further hearing on 8 October.
Mr Howard, now of Welham Road, Norton, ran Castle Howard for over 30 years but is no longer involved with the estate.
