A NEW sign to help railway users learn about the history and the wildlife of the area has been unveiled at Elsecar’s station.

The Dearne Valley Landscape Partnership has installed new signs at railway stations across Barnsley including Elsecar, Bolton-upon-Dearne, Wombwell, Thurnscoe and Goldthorpe.

They promotes nearby visitor attractions including Thurnscoe Memorial Park, RSPB Old Moor, Elsecar Heritage Centre and Conisbrough Mill.

A spokesman said: “Funding from National Lottery Heritage Fund has made the creation and installation of these signs possible and we hope they’re informative to those who pass by.”
