SK4391 : Boston Castle - Rotherham

near to Rotherham, Great Britain

Boston Castle - Rotherham
Boston Castle - Rotherham
The castle, built in 1775, was a hunting lodge owned by the Earl of Effingham. The Earl marked his objection to the harsh British treatment of the American colonies, by naming the lodge Boston Castle (after Boston, Massachusetts, the scene of the Boston Tea Party of 1775). He also banned tea drinking at the castle! The building has suffered badly from vandalism and is currently derelict. It stands on a hillside with fine views over the valley of the Rivers Don and Rother.
