VOLUNTEERS are uncovering the untold stories of workers employed at a 17th century water mill.

The project is taking place at Worsbrough Mill Museum near Barnsley.

Helpers have been looking at old books, photos and other archive material to find out more about the mill and its 240-acre park.

Assistant manager Richard Moss said: “New stories and facts about the mill crop up from time to time. The volunteers are aiming to dig a little deeper to see what else is hidden in the archives.”

They will examine images from before restoration in the 1960s and a ledger covering 1922 to 1936. To join in, email worsbroughmill@barnsley.gov.uk or call 01226 774 527.
