Elsecar recognised in top ten for special heritage in England

20th March 2017

This morning, we were very proud to reveal that Elsecar has been named as one of only ten new ‘Heritage Action Zones’ in England. This special new designation will see grant support provided and the expertise of specialists from across the country focused on Elsecar for the next three years, working with local people and groups to explore the village’s remarkable heritage.

Approaches to introducing extremely important archaeological sites into the visitor experience will be established, historical buildings and spaces brought into use and opportunities for future development identified. There will be lots of opportunities to get involved, including with archaeological digs, historical research, oral history and much more. We’ll be sharing more details very soon!
