A cancelled day [Friday] on the KCM Arena field @Stubbin. Week 6 of our Summer of Sport will have to wait for another sunny day.

Meanwhile a hardy few visited Boston Castle in Rotherham.

The Castle is a square, two storey building, standing on one of the highest points in Rotherham.

Boston Castle was as a hunting lodge by the Earl of Effingham in 1775. It acquired the name Boston Castle to commemorate the Boston Tea Party. Boston Castle is now a small visitor attraction with historical information and displays on the history of the Castle, an interactive touch screen, and children’s costumes and games.

There is also access on request to a Roof Top viewing platform for visitors to enjoy expansive views of Rotherham and Sheffield.

Boston Park was Rotherham’s first public park, and was opened on the 4 July 1876 to mark the centenary of the American Independence.

The park was originally laid out with extensive gardens, a cricket ground, a bowling and croquet lawn and an open area for gymnastics. Today the park still boasts an attractive garden area and a large open area for informal recreation. It is also well used by visitors for walking and splashing on a wet and windy day.
