Around Town Barnsley & Rotherham

Summer is here, a time to be feeling on top of the world. Despite the negativity surrounding Rotherham at the moment, we aim to, once again, provide solace and respite from the pessimism; showing off South Yorkshire in a positive light. After all, there are a lot of wonderful folk and exceptional independent businesses in our towns, who work hard to keep spirits alive.

With Yorkshire Day in August, what better time to commemorate our region than delving into the history behind the celebration and what makes Yorkshire the best place to be.

Having lived in this area for all my life, there is little I knew about the mysterious Roman Ridge. Until now. Although I must confess, I am still to put on my walking boots, but definitely plan to try our Roman Ridge walk this summer.

If you fancy a more leisurely stroll, we have visited both Wentworth and Elsecar villages to showcase just what they have to offer. The best thing about this job is meeting such varied and delightful characters. And this edition has been no exception. Particularly the local priest, Father Darren who splits his time between the church and Magna; as well as somehow managing to show true compassion for others less fortunate than himself.
