Sheffield Castle is located in Sheffield, England, and was built at the confluence of River Sheaf and River Don, probably where an Anglo-Saxon mansion was located in the original city.
The first castle was made of wood. It was erected by William de Lovetot at the beginning of the 12th century, and destroyed during the Second War of the Barons, in 1266, as well as the rest of the city. The building was replaced by another, this one of stone, in 1270.
The castle was damaged during the Civil War and demolished in 1648. The remains of the mole are preserved under the so-called Castle Market, Castle Market, occasionally opened for visits.

The Sheaf River is a short river that runs through Sheffield, in South Yorkshire (England). It is formed by the union of two streams: Totley Brook and Old Hay Brook in Totley, a residential neighborhood on the outskirts of Sheffield. The Sheaf flows north, along the Abbeydale Valley. Then he begins his journey through a sewer, passing under the center of Sheffield, emerging from time to time, until joining the Don River. This section of the Sheaf River, together with the Don River, form the boundaries of Sheffield Castle.
Until the 17th century, the word "Sheaf" was written as "Scheth" or "Sheath". Sidney Oldall Addy thought that the term had its origin in the old English word, "shed" or "sheth," which would mean "divide" or "separate." Historically, the Sheaf, along with its tributaries the Meers Brook and the Limb Brook, was part of the border that separated the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms of Mercia and Northumbria; In the twentieth century, it remained the border between Yorkshire and Derbyshire.
"Sheffield" comes from the name "Sheaf". The main tributaries of the Sheaf are the Porter Brook and the Meers Brook. Throughout years of industrial activity, the Sheaf has suffered factory pollution. Even today, it has not been fully recovered. The river was used to provide energy to the metallurgical industry, an example of which is "Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet", an industrial museum south of Sheffield.
