TO THE MANOR BORN

Back to the local Sheffield walks (no further than 5 miles, honest Guv), with a walk round the ill-defined area known as Manor, which may or may not be a similar estate to Manor in Newcastle. Someone will know.

My objective is to visit ALL the Sheffield pubs externally before the 12th and compile a must-visit list.

I think I have a winner.

OK, it’s not in the greatest area of Sheffield, strewn with rubbish and dog mess, but there are refreshment stopes en-route…

The Manor Castle pub gave its name to a ruined castle at which Mary Queen of Scots invented the first artisan pizza oven.

There’s a huge potential garden with views over industrial Sheff and the cemetery.

Some better photos of the area are on travelbloom’s Instagram; Ann was lucky enough to miss us by an hour on Saturday.

And, courtesy of the wonderful Sheffield Heritage Pub Guide,(Page 35) you can have a peak inside before their May opening.

I see handpumps, possibly Tetley, but What Pub promises keg.

It may be a stiff walk from the Park Hill flats, but I can’t wait.

    Would Plod ask to see ID (with address), then punch it into Google Maps to ensure you are not, um, lying? 😉

    “Someone will know.”

    I can tell you that it’s not me who knows. 🙂

    “My objective is to visit ALL the Sheffield pubs externally before the 12th and compile a must-visit list.”

    Jolly good idea!

    “but there are refreshment stopes en-route…”

    Posh!

    “at which Mary Queen of Scots invented the first artisan pizza oven.”

    I bet she pinched that from a passing Neapolitan merchant.

    “It may be a stiff walk from the Park Hill flats, but I can’t wait.”

    I’m guessing it will be a stiff walk due to your, um, excitement. 😉

    Cheers

    PS – And yes, early posting yet again. My darling wife is on another video call.
