Elsecar by the Sea

10am - 4pm

Running throughout the Summer Holidays.

In days gone by, families from Sheffield, Rotherham and Barnsley used to flock to Elsecar for a day out at the reservoir to enjoy boat rides, picnics and games on the shore. It was so popular that newspapers coined the phrase Elsecar-by-the-Sea!

Now you can take part in our Elsecar-by-the-Sea Trail. Just pop to the Visitor Centre to pick up your free trail leaflet then find all the objects hidden around Elsecar Heritage Centre. Collect the words to make the title of a popular summer song and then collect your summer sticker from the Visitor Centre.
