Building Bridges & Forging Ahead – Community Project At Elsecar

9th January 2024

A new community and volunteering project, Building Bridges & Forging Ahead, is celebrating the heritage of Elsecar, with funding from The National Lottery Heritage Fund, and supported by Barnsley Museums and Heritage Trust.  

The project will build a People’s Archive of Elsecar and make an incredible piece of public art to mark the 200th anniversary of spectacular bridges being built for an island off the coast of Africa. Special community workshops will also explore our global links.

There’s lots of volunteering to get involved in too, including talking to visitors, recording memories, working with our green spaces, improving habitats and understanding historic buildings.

See the website or call 01226 740203 for more information and to get involved.
