The Friends of Sheffield Castle are a voluntary group who aim to protect and promote the archaeological site of Sheffield Castle for the benefit of the people of Sheffield and surrounding areas, and for future generations.
Friends of Sheffield Manor Lodge
Sheffield Manor Lodge is an important part of both English and European history. From 1573, Sheffield Manor Lodge became more than a family home-it became a royal prison for Mary, Queen of Scots who was kept in custody in the manner of a Queen.
A largely ruined C16th with possible earlier origins complex that was home to George Talbot, 6th Earl of Shrewsbury and his formidable wife, Bess of Hardwick together with their house guest, the Captive Queen herself, Mary Queen Of Scots. Visited by the doomed Cardinal Wolsey this historic site has many tales to tell and now boasts a restored Turret House and new and many faceted Discovery Centre. Numerous views over Sheffield and South Yorkshire that still emphasise that this was the centre of the medieval Sheffield Deer Park with 1200 head of deer amidst mighty oak and walnut trees.
