Old Thrybergh Park


Thrybergh Hall photo courtesy and copyright Jonathan DabbsThe photo is of Thrybergh Hall as built by John Fullerton, it is now the Club House of Rotherham Golf Club.
The history of the park is practically the history of Thrybergh, we know there was a habitat here in Saxon Times and it is more than likely that the Saxon presence was predated by others. The Church of St Leonard's in the park possibly being established on the site of early Christian gatherings.

The park would have been largely a natural landscape, but with the arrival of Sir John Reresby as Lord of the Manor in the 1600's, the park was cultivated in parts. In fact Sir John Reresby jnr did a tremendous amount of work restoring the original hall and its surroundings. His Mother had ignored the upkeep of the property and upon leaving the hall removed just about every artefact within.


In its prime the park was home to deer and also a home to much of the wildlife one would expect to find in the English countryside.

With the advantage of the nearby River Don fishing was just a walk in the park, this would be prior to the Don becoming polluted as a result of industrial misuse.



Thrybergh Park Cricket club was established on the grounds until recent years.
The summer house {left }photographed around 1908, which shows the shrubbery and flowers maintained by men like Tom Beeden who was head Gardener around the time the photo was taken. As you browse through the pages of this site you will catch glimpses of the park and its not hard to imagine why in earlier times this property was largely envied.
One of the guest who stayed in the hall was Sir Walter Scott the author of Ivanhoe. The novel was based around the nearby Conisbrough Castle and Sir Walter would have formulated much of the story during his time at the hall.
The park today retains much of its beauty, and is well maintained around the Golf Course. The new Thrybergh Park which is the brainchild of Rotherham Borough Council lies close by on the other side of Doncaster Road.
