A visitor attraction is turning back the clock to mark its anniversary.

Cannon Hall Farm in Barnsley is celebrating 25 years as a tourist attraction by charging 1989 prices for one day only.

Next Monday, March 24, adults can visit for £1 and children for just 75p.

Farm director Robert Nicholson said: “It seems like only yesterday we took the plunge and embarked on a life centred around farm tourism and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed every minute.”

The farm is about to embark on stage two of a £4million investment that has already seen the creation of a new farmyard, milking parlour and rare breeds barn.

The next stage is a play centre and café.

This year the farm hosts its first music festival, and has just had its most successful early lambing ever, with almost 300 more ewes due at Easter.
