Art exhibition launches summer season at Rotherham's Boston Castle

A NEW art exhibition has launched at Boston Castle to mark the 18th century attraction opening for summer.

Work on display by painter Chris Bilton features picturesque scenes of locations around South Yorkshire.

Boston Castle — built as a hunting lodge in 1775 — is open four days a week until September.

Cllr Taiba Yasseen, Rotherham Borough Council Cabinet member for culture, said: “Visitors can explore the delightful history of the museum, find out about more about its former owner the Earl of Effingham and also see some fine artwork from one of our leading local artists.

“I would encourage anyone to visit one of Rotherham’s most fascinating buildings and see Boston Castle’s first ever art exhibition, which will run throughout the summer season.”

Visitors can also access the roof of the castle, which was opened to the public after a £1.2 million restoration in 2012.

The castle, off Moorgate Road, is open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays — plus bank holiday Mondays — from 10am to 3pm. Last admission is at 2.45pm.

Entry is free and roof tours can be booked for £1 per person. Guided tours can also be booked at £4 per person (minimum ten people).

To hire the room or book a guided tour, email Boston@rotherham.gov.uk or phone Clifton Park Museum on 01709 336633.
