More information : [SK 37558650] Manor Lodge and remains of Manor House [G.T.]. (1)
The remains of parts of the S. and E. walls of Manor Lodge, built c1510 and dismantled in 1706. Architecturally more interesting is the Elizabethan building called Turret House, built about 1574, in the Outward Court, as a prison for Mary Stuart where she had resided for 14 years. The building was not fortified. (2-3)

The name Manor Lodge is officially used to describe the ruins of the `Manor house' and Turret House, both of which are owned and maintained by Sheffield corporation. See G.P.'s AO/53/15/2 & 3 and AO/65/51/5. Turret House, at SK 37498648 is a good example of restored 16th century architecture and is now occupied by the custodian of the site. GP. AO/65/57/2 shows the SW aspect. See also sketch plan. (4)

Annual excavations of the site continued and several building phases have been identified, the earliest of which appear to relate to the Medieval hunting lodge. There appears to have been an extensive programme of rebuilding in the latter half the the 16th century. (12-21)
