We are planning a field trip to Binchester Roman Fort in July 2013 in partnership with Yorkshire Architectural and York Archaeological Society (YAYAS).
More details will be posted here when they are finalised.
The first field trip of 2013 will be on Sunday 19 May to the Elsecar Heritage Centre, Elsecar, Barnsley, South Yorkshire
Situated close to the M1 between Junctions 35 and 36 in South Yorkshire, the heritage centre is located in the attractive conservation village of Elsecar occupying buildings that began as the ironworks and colliery workshops of the Earl Fitzwilliam. Restored historical buildings now house an antique centre, individual craft workshops, and exhibitions of Elsecar's past.
The day starts with registration and coffee between 9.45 and 10.00 followed by a talk and guided tour of the heritage centre between 10.00 and 12.30. After lunch (included in the booking fee) the afternoon begins at 1.30 with a visit to the Elsecar Heritage Railway adjacent to the Heritage Centre. There will be an opportunity to look at the static displays of diesel and steam engines in the care of the Heritage Railway before taking a short train ride alongside the Dearne and Dove Canal. The day ends at 4.45 after a two hour guided tour of the early industrial village of Elsecar with its stone cottages constructed to house miners and foundry workers.
The cost of the day trip will be £20 to include refreshments and lunch and all entry fees.
Further details will be sent with confirmation of booking.
Please return the attached booking by 3 May 2013 to Louise Mallinson, Programme Secretary, CBA Yorkshire, 45 Frank Lane, Thornhill, Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, WF12 0JW
