A WALK has been organised taking in the Autumn beauty of Wombwell Woods.

Groundwork Dearne Valley are inviting local residents to come for a walk to show Dearne people that they don’t have to travel far to see amazing scenery and wildlife. – it is all there on their own doorstep. Barnsley wildlife expert Alwyn Timm will lead the walks, which form part of Groundwork’s Hidden Gems series. He said: “The beech trees in the woods should be a blaze of colour and the fungi will be out”. The exploration will start from the centre of Wombwell up into the woods on Saturday November 3, leaving Wombwell High Street from outside Wilkinson’s at 10.30 am, with a second meeting at the Barley Sheaf pub on the corner of Aldham House Lane and Summer Lane at approximately 10.50 am. The full walk is 5 miles, or 3.5 miles from the Barley Sheaf. Ring Alex Benson on 01226 740077.
