Event description

Description

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 the University of Sheffield's 500 Reformations offers you the opportunity to explore this history on foot, as part of a guided walking tour in central Sheffield. 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.

Important: Participants must come appropriately dressed for the weather. This event involves uphill and downhill walking, covering less than a mile in total. There is limited shelter and no seating for much of the time.

Please notify the organisers if you have any accessibility requirements (e.g. wheelchair-friendly route) so that we can review arrangements.
