Elsecar & Wentworth Woodhouse

If you watched Michael Portillo’s Great British Railway Journeys tonight (Wednesday), you will have seen him visit the Elsecar Heritage Centre, near Barnsley, and nearby Wentworth Woodhouse, a huge stately home built by the Fitzwilliams, owners of the Elsecar mines.

Don’t miss the day visit already arranged to precisely these two places by West Wolds U3A on Wednesday 18th September this year – watch out for the flyer and booking form to be displayed later on. We even include a ride on the heritage railway (but not a steam engine – the BBC has a bigger budget than us …).
