Celebrating the area’s heritage

Have your say

FRIENDS of Wincobank Hill have organised a heritage learning session about the history of the area including its old Roman fort.

Meanwhile Clifton Park in Rotherham has won the Heritage and Conservation Award in the 2012 Landscape Institute Awards, run by the Royal Chartered Body for Landscape Architects. The award follows completion of an eight-year restoration project at a cost of £7.5 million involving Rotherham Council and the Friends of Clifton Park.
