David Clarke found a sketch plan of Sheffield Castle, supposedly dated around 1700, in a little book by Thomas Winder, “T’Heft an’ Blades o’Sheffield: Dialect stories and Antiquarian papers”, published in
Sheffield 1907. We wonder what data the plan was based on?

  1. I have a feeling that Winder based his sketch/plan on records in the Duke of Norfolk’s Estates Office.Go forward to the Fairbanks Map of 1771 and you see the same indications of slopes around the site.
