More about this scene


Caption for Conisbrough, The Castle 1895: Built out of the local creamy-white limestone, the keep is 90 ft high and has six semi-hexagonal buttresses which rise above it to form mini-turrets. By the mid 16th century the castle was semi-derelict: a long stretch of curtain wall had collapsed and at least one floor of the keep had fallen in. The fortress was in such poor condition that it was never garrisoned during the Civil War.

Memories of Conisbrough

I remember going to visit my grandparents and being carried around the lock and talking to the bargees with my grandad.
