People will have the chance to see a piece of local history come to life for free as part of heritage weekend.

Hoylandswaine Nail Forge will be open to the public on Friday, September 13, and Sunday, September 15, from 11am to 4pm.

It can be found between Penistone and Barnsley, near Lord Nelson’s pub.

The forge is believed to be the only one in the country that is still on its original site, with its original hearth, chimney and bellows.

It was the last working nail forge in the village and was running until World War Two. Nails were made by hand there on an anvil.
