Bentley Pinfold Open Day

Following the recent post charting the story of the restoration of Bentley Pinfold, the latest news is that the pinfold has now been officially opened, with a proper ribbon cutting…


The day was attended by local folk, with their memories and stories. For example, Mavis remembering when the pinfold was used for its intended purpose (enclosing stray animals).

The wildflowers are flourishing, as is the Butterfly Bush (Buddleia davidii).

And now that the pinfold is officially open for business, the bees have started to arrive.


An observation hive was brought along by Alan Woodward of the Doncaster Beekepers Association – which generated keen interest.
