People have lived and worked at Beeston since prehistoric times and in the Bronze Ages it was an important defended settlement and metalworking centre.
To help us tell the history of Beeston Castle, a replica Bronze Age roundhouse has been built using authentic tools and evidence from past archaeological digs plus the help of a dedicated team of 60 volunteers. The roundhouse is now open for all visitors to immerse themselves in all things Bronze Age.Find out more
