#AYearOfBuses 220: Doncaster – Cortonwood

We’re checking out somewhere new today on #AYearOfBuses – it’s day 220!

Stagecoach Yorkshire’s 220 is a particularly interesting route. Connecting Doncaster with Conisbrough, Mexborough, Wath upon Dearne and Cortonwood, it follows a route roughly aligned with the River Don across South Yorkshire.

Along the way, you can see Conisbrough Castle, a partially restored medieval fortification initially built in the 11th century by William de Warenne, the Earl of Surrey, after the Norman conquest of England in 1066. It inspired Sir Walter Scott’s most famous novel, Ivanhoe, published in 1819.
