A CROWDFUNDING campaign to build a nature play trail at Cannon Hall Park & Gardens in Barnsley has raised over £4,000.

The money will fund a tree sculpture to mark the entrance of a new nature play trail in the grounds of the hall in Cawthorne.

The campaign was set up by Barnsley Museums & Heritage Trust, in partnership with Cannon Hall and Parks for People, which aims to help families explore the great outdoors.

Margot Walker, chair of trustees at Barnsley Museums & Heritage Trust, said: “We wanted to give children and families the chance to explore and discover nature on their doorstep in the beautiful grounds of Cannon Hall. We’d like to say thank you to everyone who supported the campaign.”
