Visit to the Three Cranes Inn and Boston Castle, Rotherham - SOLD OUT
Talk and Tour | Meet at Rotherham Parish Church
Wednesday 20 April 2016 - 10:30 until 12:30
Visit the Three Cranes Inn (restored in 2015) and Boston Castle.
The Grade II listed Three Cranes Inn is considered to be the oldest secular building in Rotherham, dating back to the 15th century. It has a medieval open hall block that retains evidence for a coved area called a dais, historically rare and important. It is the only timber framed structure to survive in Rotherham. Chris Hamby, the owner, will talk about the history of the building and its restoration.
Boston Castle, also a Grade II listed building, constructed by the 3rd Earl of Effingham was named to mark his opposition to the British attempts to crush the American Revolution. It is a small but stately micro-museum. The speakers will be Tim Brannen, photographic archivist and Janet Worrall, secretary to the friends of Boston Park.
This event has been organised by the South Yorkshire Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
