STAFF at Cannon Hall Museum are celebrating as they have received a Natural England Country Park Accreditation Award.

The award is given to country parks above 10 hectares in size and that show an outstanding visitor commitment.

The accreditation for Cannon Hall is one in a line of Natural England awards received by Barnsley Council’s country parks and gardens including Worsbrough Mill Museum and Country Park and Rabbit Ings Country Park.

Cllr Linda Burgess, said: “This accreditation is recognition of the hard work of the team at Cannon Hall who are committed to maintaining the park to these excellent standards. It's also a reflection of just how much local people value this tremendous asset to which they have free access.”
