Thorns of the Red Rose

Kirkstall was not the only site visited on Tuesday. As we returned to Sheffield, we stopped at Sandal Castle which was an important stronghold during the Wars of the Roses. It was here on Dec 30, 1460 that the Lancastrians won a prominent victory over the Yorkists. It is known to us as the Battle of Wakefield.
