THE restoration of a stately home in South Yorkshire has been nominated for an award which recognises the country’s best heritage projects.

Wentworth Castle and Stainborough Park, near Barnsley, has made the finals in the National Lottery Awards.

The stately home’s restoration has just finished its first phase, and has been voted through to the finals in the Best Heritage Project category.

Claire Herring, director of the Wentworth Castle trust, said she was ‘delighted’ by the accolade.

She said: “It’s a wonderful achievement for everyone who has helped us to become a real jewel in Barnsley’s crown.”

The winners are decided by the public, and voting takes place until September 26.
