The origins of the celebration date to the turn of the Twentieth century when the summer charms of Elsecar’s reservoir were promoted to Sheffield city dwellers as a ‘seaside’ escape from the industrial grime and smog.
We’re all looking forward to a fun weekend with an Open Day and Working Party on Saturday at Hemingfield, and a great array of events and activities going on around Elsecar for #Elsecarbythesea
