  • Yorkshire Sheet 284.10 Conisbrough 1901 - published 1985, 2nd Edition 2001; intro by Alan Godfrey. ISBN.978-0-85054-021-5

    This detailed map covers the historic town of Conisbrough with its great castle, which inspired Walter Scott's novel Ivanhoe. Most of the town is covered, including the castle itself, St Peter's church, Burcroft, New Hill and (on a small backing map extending coverage south) Holywell Hill, Lime Grove and Holywell Brewery. The main map extends west to include Denaby Main village, including All Saints church and the eastern part of Denaby Main Colliery (the rest is on sheet 284.09). The GCR Barnsley to Barnetby line runs through the map, including Conisbrough station and sidings to Providence Glass Works. Near to it is the Denaby terminus of the South Yorkshire Junction Railway. Finally the map includes Cadeby Main Colliery, shown in some detail with track layout; this was the scene of a devastating explosion in 1912. Cadeby Colliery finally closed in 1986 and part of the site was used for the Earth Centre.


    This map links up with sheet 284.09 Mexborough to the west.
