“Fantastic views”
Review of Hoober Stand

Hoober Stand
Reviewed September 22, 2013

It was the most perfect sunny clear day but WOW what views. The information sheet given helps you to spot sights and look out for things on the horizon with lovely clear views over Wentworth, Rotherham, Doncaster, over to Emley Moor and all the way to York Minster!

Walked here as part of a lovely walk from Elsecar & around to Wentworth. Really interesting folly built in 1800's.
Real shame some muppets have thought it ok to leave their initials in the lovely stone work!!

A local historical icon, the 100 plus steps to reach the top is not for the feint hearted, but once up there the views are tremendous

A great attraction to visit either throughout the week, or on a Sunday afternoon when the folly is open to members of the public. Great views from the top of the moors to the west of Sheffield and the whole of Yorkshire before you.
