Most likely built by Hamelin de Warenne, Earl of Surrey, during the 12th century, Conisbrough Castle has been at the heart of British politics during the turbulent times of both the ‘Anarchy’ and the War of the Roses. When Edward, Earl of march was crowned King Edward IV the castle became royal property. Over the years it fell into ruin and was thus largely ignored during the English Civil war that destroyed a great many other castles. It is said to be the castle described as ‘Coningsburgh’ in the famous novel, Ivanhoe, written by Sir Walter Scott. It’s said to be haunted by a Grey monk and White Lady. Stranger still is the photo taken by Stephen Pratt in 1996 that seems to show three UFO’s flying from the direction of the Castle and then over the river fields at the end of Halifax avenue.
