Stocksbridge on Industrial Heritage Route

An industrial heritage trail linking five sites across South and West Yorkshire has been unveiled -  a new European Route of Industrial Heritage (ERIH), one of 15 across the continent, the 'Makers, Miners and Money' route includes Sheffield's Kelham Island Museum, the Elsecar Heritage Centre, in Barnsley, and the National Coal Mining Museum in Wakefield. The three sites have been named as "anchor points" or "sites of exceptional historical importance." Wentworth Woodhouse and Wentworth Castle Gardens are also included.

Stocksbridge is right in the middle of the route.

Anchor points are "sites of exceptional historical importance in terms of industrial heritage which also offer a high quality visitor experience".
