This four-day CAMRA beer festival is to be held over the early May bank holiday weekend, in conjunction with the Elsecar Heritage Railway – the Coalfields Memorial Line, set in the attractive conservation village of Elsecar. The CAMRA beer marquee will feature 80+ real ales and cider

Located behind the Elsecar Heritage Centre the venue is a working heritage railway off Wath Road, Elsecar, which is on the 66 bus route from Barnsley interchange. The venue is only 8 minutes walking from the Elsecar Railway Station, which has services between Sheffield and Leeds/Huddersfield. If coming by car follow the brown tourist signs for Elsecar Heritage Centre, which start some way out on the M1. Parking is plentiful and free.

The Heritage Railway will have the steam locomotives for rides to the Cortonwood return (see website www.elsecarrailway.co.uk for more details).


When the trains stop there will be live entertainment on stage in the station yard. Food stalls and CAMRA tombola stands will be open throughout the weekend.


The Elsecar Heritage Centre is the restored historical buildings that were formerly ironworks and colliery workshops of the Earl Fitzwilliam. They now house an antique centre, individual craft workshops, shops and exhibitions of Elsecar's past. Entry is free.


The latest attraction to be opened to the public is the Elsecar Newcomen Beam Engine is one of Yorkshire's finest surviving legacies of the Industrial Revolution. It is the only Newcomen – type atmospheric pressure beam engine in the WORLD to have remained in its original location.


This will be great weekend out for all the family.
