More about this scene


Caption for Tickhill, Market Place C1955: Situated nine miles east of Rotherham on the A361, the village of Tickhill once had one of the most important castles in the North, built on a motte no less than 75ft high and surrounded by a wet moat 30ft wide. The original castle was built of wood, but it was replaced with stone in the early 12th century, probably by Henry I after he had confiscated the fortress from Robert de Belleme.
