History of Sheffield Manor Lodge

You can trace the story of Sheffield Manor Lodge back to its beginnings as a medieval hunting lodge. It became an imposing Tudor manor house, developed by Bess of Hardwick and her husband, the Earl of Shrewsbury, into a comfortable "prison" for Mary Queen of Scots.

Following it's Tudor heyday came a period of industrial use. The ruins and grounds were first used for farming, adding a pottery in the 1700s. As heavy industry grew throughout Sheffield in the Victorian period, a community developed around the local mine. At the turn of the 20th century, the then Duke of Norfolk demolished any non-Tudor buildings and so began Sheffield Manor Lodge’s restoration into the site we see today.
