On a clear day you can see for miles at the top of Hoober. £2.50 to enter, but don't expect too much from it. It's somewhere I've always wanted to visit so was happy to pay. Woodlands surround the area which are nice to walk...More

One of the old historic sites of Yorkshire, a wonderful place to visit, you need to walk to it but that's not a problem as the scenery is stunning, then you can visit Wentworth estate, and the garden centre for a lovely cream tea

Been quite a few times as I live a few minutes away. Always clean and tidy. It's a work out going up the steps! Not for everybody, but if you like a bit of history and views (on clear days) it's spot on.

We managed to find our way here and found it open. It feels a little magical right from the moment you get close at ground level. The stairs are not for the faint hearted but you can rest on the way up and peep through...More

This folly is an iconic local landmark to the Dearne Valley. A quirky design, the building has historic significance. To locals the sight of it, built on a high point over the valley, means home. A visit to climb the monument with accompanying information sheet...More
