More about this scene


Caption for Conisbrough, The Castle From The River 1895: The castle is set on a knoll overlooking the River Don. 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. When Sir Walter Scott visited Conisbrough, he was so impressed with the tiny chapel set into one of the buttresses that he included it in his novel 'Ivanhoe'.

Memories of Conisbrough

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