Cannon Hall History Group

Experience Barnsley

Join our expert Archives Team every Wednesday to help uncover the Cannon Hall Park and Gardens of the past. Learn about ‘behind the scenes’ characters such as gardeners and servants who played a vital role in the running of the grounds. Use our extensive records to discover what was ordered, planted and grown in the gardens. Make on-site investigations and mapping to see if the trees and plants can still be found today – and help us bring history to life for future generations through displays, art and information sharing.

At the first session, you can talk about your key interests and aims, meet like-minded people, learn how to use the archives, and find out about the information we have available for Cannon Hall.

Every Wednesday - 10am - 12pm.
