Colin Crosby Heritage Tours


Wath-upon-Dearne is a market town in South Yorkshire, 5 miles from Rotherham.

It is a former mining town, which until late in the 20th century had two collieries.

The River Dearne separates the town from the smaller Bolton-upon-Dearne.

All Saints Church, partly mediaeval, stands overlooking the valley.

Edward II granted Wath its charter for a market and fair in 1312. The base of the Market Cross, with a modern shaft, now stands proudly in the town centre.

Old Moor is a nature reserve managed by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.

Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby is available to lead Guided Walks around Wath-upon-Dearne for groups.
