Castles talk at Worksop Library

by | 22 February 2018 | Heritage, Retford, Worksop

Nottingham and Newark castles may be famous, but archaeologist James Wright uncovers the stories of castle sites that are often unrecognised, even by local people at a heritage talk at Worksop Library in February.

Traces of motte and bailey castles hide in the landscape and medieval fortified manor houses still stand and bear witness. Based on a book of the same name (Nottinghamshire County Council, 2008), this is a refreshed and updated talk on a popular local theme.

James Wright FSA is an archaeologist and historian based at the University of Nottingham. His last talk at Worksop Library, ‘A Palace for our Kings’, was a sell-out. Early booking for the ‘Castles of Nottinghamshire’ talk is therefore strongly recommended.

It takes place on Wednesday 28th February, from 2.00pm to 3.00pm and tickets cost £3.00. Tickets can be purchased from Worksop Library on 0115 8044373 or go to the What’s On section of the Inspire website to book online, www.inspireculture.org.uk.
