Join us for a fascinating walk from Elsecar to the ironstone fields at Tankersley, through an incredible, industrial landscape. The walk will follow sections of the historic waggonway network that connected the ironstone fields with the Milton and Elsecar ironworks, taking in former collieries and other sites of interest on the way starting from 11am.

Meet outside the Visitor Centre. The walk is approximately 6 miles (9 km) and includes some steep climbs, uneven ground and sections of road walking.
