A CONTRACT to restore the fragile Victorian conservatory at Wentworth Castle and Stainborough Park in Barnsley has been awarded to Shepley Engineers which has workshops in Shafton.

The restoration of the conservatory is the culmination of 10 years of fundraising and is supported by £2.5m from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Dismantling work is expected to begin towards the end of August before the iron structure is taken off site to the Shafton workshop for eight months of restoration work.
