Tickhill is a Yorkshire village with a history dating back to the Domesday Book. There are many traditional shops and pubs in Tickhill, which is a lovely place to explore, including the 12th century Tickhill Castle, which has had an eventful history; a battle between Prince John and his brother King Richard I and then the civil war of the 1640s when Oliver Cromwell paid it a visit! Today Tickhill Castle remains an impressive ruin, with its Norman gatehouse, foundations and moat, which are all accessible. The lovely millpond has a wide variety of ducks, and there is a very pleasant circular walk from it, a great way to take in the surroundings. Tickhill is in a superb position for Doncaster Races, which is 10 miles away, and the bright lights, theatres and shopping of Sheffield is only a 20 minute drive away. The Peak District National Park, Alton Towers and Sherwood Forest, the classic home of Robin Hood are all within easy reach. Bawtry, where the Mayflower Pilgrim Fathers came from, can be explored, while Lincoln is just 40 minutes away and a bit further are the Lincolnshire coast, York and Leeds, or The Deep submarium in Hull.
