Over 300 new events added

Over the past week, we have added 300 new events to the history of both Pontefract and Sandal Castles.

On 24th May we are meeting historian Sharon Bennett-Connolly. Sharon has a new book – ‘Defenders of the Norman Crown – Rise and Fall of the Warenne Earls of Surrey’ – being published on 31st May 2021. This will be an enthralling insight into the owners of Sandal Castle from the 11th to the 14th centuries.
