VOLUNTEERS are needed to help fathom the secrets hidden in a diary belonging to a woman who used to live in Cannon Hall.

Barnsley Archives and Local Studies need volunteers to help catalogue documents and photographs belonging to the Spencer-Stanhope family.

There will be the personal diaries of Margaret Elizabeth Fraser Spencer-Stanhope and the chance to research the travels of John Spencer-Stanhope and compile history of the family.

A spokesman said: "If you have a passion for local history or are interested in a career in archives and local studies, then this could be a fantastic opportunity to discover over 200 years of local history."

Anyone wanting to take part can email archives@barnsley.gov.uk
