Glass panel of the castle

In the Terminus Tavern, Darnall, there is a glass panel (age unknown) depicting the castle The original pub was demolished in 1910 and replaced by the current building.

The porch retains a mosaic floor with the wording the Old Bradley Well, the original name of both the demolished and newlybuilt  pub. The walls of the lobby are covered in tiles from floor to ceiling; there is a row of Art Nouveaux tiles at dado rail level and a frieze of more at the top. The screen with the inner door has lots of stained and leaded panels; the top one features a central panel of Sheffield Castle.

  1. Like FOSC Chair Martin Gorman I think that the image is of Windsor Castle.At the time of the pub rebuild circa 1910 there is nothing that has been discovered/uncovered about Sheffield Castle to give rise to the incorporation of such an image especially in a public house so far removed from the castle site.
    Two clues as to the Windsor theory.About 1901 King Edward the Seventh starts renovating Windsor Castle and Gilmours Windsor Ales have a logo/livery depicting presumably the Castle of that name.This can be seen in other pubs round Sheffield.Interesting image and one which wants to be preserved all the same.
