Meet at the Exchange Brewery

The profile of the Friends of Sheffield Castle continues to expand together with the proposals for Castlegate on not only a Yorkshire but now a national basis. Sunday 14th September sees the ‘Beating of the Bounds of Sheffield Castle’ in which the environs of Sheffield’s hitherto lost medieval stronghold with such related sites as Lady’s Bridge and the Old Queens Head public house can be explored by Sheffielders young and Old (although this walk is not recommended for children under 10).

Meet up with Friends of Sheffield Castle’s Ron Clayton at 12 noon outside the Exchange Brewery, Nursery Street and finish at the Old Queens Head, Pond Hill at 1400 hours. You will require a strong sense of imagination and be prepared to cross busy roads in a safe and orderly manner as well as possessing a sense of humour!

Any enquiries to bigronclayton@hotmail.co.uk.

  1. Looking forward to this event, I’ll be there with a few others I hope. It was great to read that the old Castle Market will be demolished by the end of the year to allow the archaeological excavation to begin. There is so much potential for new finds that we may soon be entering very exciting times indeed. Does anyone know – was the area under the Haymarket ever excavated as it too may have possible castle remains under there.
