Staff at a South Yorkshire watermill are working hard to bring the magic of Christmas to life this year.

Families are invited along to the 17th century working Worsbrough Mill, near Barnsley, to visit its grotto.

Children can write a letter to Father Christmas and take a peek inside the workshop where his elves have been busy preparing for the big day.

They will then get the chance to meet with the man himself and tell him what is on their Christmas list.

New to the mill this year is a Christmas gift and food fair.

It will be hosted in the grounds of the mill and offers visitors the chance to buy some tempting treats and unique gifts.

The grotto is on December 13,14, 20, 21, 22 and 23 from 10.30am to 4pm, with a special evening event on Friday, December 19, from 4pm to 7.30pm.

Tickets are £7 for children and £4 for adults.

Demand is expected to be high and booking is essential for all dates.

Meanwhile, the mill is hosting a Christmas Carol Concert on Sunday, December 21, from 1.30pm to 3pm.

The free event features Worsbrough Brass Band
