New name at Wentworth

Have your say

WENTWORTH Castle Trust has appointed Claire Herring as the new Director at Wentworth Castle and Stainborough Park, Barnsley.

Claire’s appointment coincides with an exciting time in the development of the historic Park and Gardens which last month secured almost £2.5m of Heritage Lottery Funding towards the cost of restoring Wentworth Castle’s unique Victorian Conservatory.

Claire was formerly the Property Manager at the National Trust’s Clumber Park.

She has spent the last 10 years running her own business, providing training and consultancy in the countryside and heritage sectors.

Trust Chairman, John Edwards, said: “Claire impressed us with her knowledge and experience of the sector and we are delighted to welcome her to Wentworth”.
