Stanley Ferry Aqueducts
An interesting pair of aqueducts side-by-side - one each from the 19th century and 20th century. The Victorian one is wrought iron, the one built in 1981 is concrete. Nearby, the historic city of Wakefield is undergoing a transformation into a modern centre for culture and great family days out.
In the city there are plenty of opportunities for shopping, eating and drinking, and culture-lovers will discover the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. The Hepworth Wakefield art gallery will also be opening in 2011. Wakefield is easy to explore on foot, with Wakefield Cathedral, Wakefield Museum and Wakefield Theatre, all within a short walking distance from the main shopping area, train and bus stations.
For shopaholics the Ridings Shopping Centre offers big name brands, while the Market Hall includes room for over 100 traders in the indoor and outdoor market. Historic houses to visit include Nostell Priory, Bretton Country Park and Heath Hall.
