Conisbrough

Hob Uid: 1475676
Location :
Doncaster
Non Civil Parish
Grid Ref : SK5121998770
Summary : An enclosure, possibly representing the pre-conquest royal 'burgh' from which the town takes its name or town defences contemporary with the foundation of Conisbrough Castle (or both), is suggested by the street plan of Conisbrough as depicted on historic Ordnance Survey maps. The church of St Peter sits at the approximate centre of the enclosure and seems to have influenced the eventual street plan, which may represent a compromise between Norman urban planning and a pre-existing layout.
