A project is under way to transcribe and translate original court rolls held by Barnsley Archives and Local Studies.

The unique and irreplaceable court rolls contain centuries of history on the village of Worsbrough Dale.

A full typed transcript of the rolls will bring their contents to life for the first time and help researchers to understand more about Worsbrough’s past.

The project is being conducted by Worsbrough history groups in conjunction with Barnsley Archives and Barnsley Libraries and Information Service.
