After about ten inches of snow fell in places on Doncaster over Friday night, I set off by train to Conisbrough on the Saturday morning to find the castle. The visitor centre was open, but the gents inside were very apologetic that I couldn’t go to the top of the castle because of the weather and didn’t quite understand at first why I said the snow was a bonus.
Join me for a walk around the outside of Conisbrough Castle, you’ll need your wellies, and in some places your balance, but it’s surprisingly not cold as the snow is already starting to thaw.
If you’re not too cold and you’ve got some spare energy left, have a go on the slopes with the sledgers, I’ll head on a little further round to the visitor centre and have a cuppa waiting for you when you get there.
