The Peaks’ village of Bradbourne, Derbyshire forms the focus of investigation for this talk from University of Sheffield archaeologist, John Moreland.

Bradbourne’s Anglo-Saxon stone cross and church serve as evidence to chart the ‘progress’ of Reformation in this part of Derbyshire. The material evidence, and the texts, speak to us of iconoclasm, destruction, resistance—and eventual Reformation’.

The talk may include some references to the course of Reformation in Sheffield, particularly a local Anglo-Saxon cross.

This 500 Reformations event is hosted by the Friends of Bishops’ House.

About the venue: Bishops’ House is a timber-framed property sited within what is now Meersbrook Park to the southeast of Sheffield. Its construction was recently dated to the reigns of Mary and Elizabeth Tudor. The site is managed by volunteers, and open to the public at weekends, and for school visits by arrangement.
