A site dedicated to the history and continuing traditions of this beautifully quaint Estate village.
For a small village, Wentworth is unusual in that it has two churches – the partly ruined (but still occasionally used) old church and the Victorian new church. Find out all you need to know via this site packed with historical information, events and activities taking place at this hub of village life.

RSPB Reserve – Old Moor
Situated right at the heart of the Dearne Valley, Old Moor is a wonderful place to come and watch wildlife. The skies, fields and open water are teeming with birds throughout the year. In the summer the grasslands are ablaze with butterflies and orchids, and you’ll be able to see newly-hatched ducklings. In winter the reserve is an important stopping-off point for ducks, geese and swans – plus 8,000 golden plovers.
Yorkshire’s gardens and parks come in all shapes and sizes, and are some of the finest in England. From the mirror-like pools of Studley Royal water garden to the riot of architectural features at Castle Howard, Yorkshire is a must of garden connoisseurs.
Whilst the eccentricities of times past have been immortalised by Constable and others, Yorkshire is still designing and planting some of Europe’s most exciting new gardens such as the Sheffield Winter Garden and the Gardens at Scampston.
