Sheffield Castle was built on the banks of the River Don and River Sheaf in the late 11th or early 12th century. Mary Queen of Scots was prisoner there between 1570 and 1584, and the castle was levelled in 1648 following the Civil War.

Now 500 Reformations offers you the opportunity to explore this history on foot, as part of a guided walking tour. Use your feet and your imagination to rethink Sheffield’s past, and find out how historic documents help us make contact with the structure of medieval and early modern Sheffield.

This walk will be led by Dr Gareth Dean, who has spent the past 12 months documenting and interpreting evidence from past excavations of the castle site as part of the Castlegate Archives project.

The route is less than one mile, involving some uphill and downhill walking. Please dress appropriately for the weather.

Reserve a place via EventBrite (FREE) or call 0114 222 9896 (Tuesday-Friday, 10-3) and ask about the Reformations Castle Walk.

**UPDATE: 07 Feb:
This event is now fully booked. An additional date is being arranged and will be advertised shortly. If you wish to be notified of this, please use the Contact form on this website.**
