Catcliffe Glass Kiln and Heritage Day - 21st September, 2019

Catcliffe Kiln is a listed monument with Historic England, located in Catcliffe. It is an undervalued asset to that community. A number of local community groups and Catcliffe Parish Council share a vested interest in promoting the Kiln and looking at wa

Councillors used some of their Ward Budget as match funding with Rother Valley West Area Housing Panel, which enabled them to provide a power supply to the Kiln.

This has allowed us to work with Museum staff, Friends of Catcliffe the Church group and the Brinsworth and Catcliffe Local History Group to hold an annual nativity scene and carol service.

Plans are now underway for the next Catcliffe Heritage Day which will take place on Saturday 21st September 2019 from 10am to 3pm.

This event will celebrate the heritage of Catcliffe as well as being a family orientated event. There will be a number of historical displays, photographic talks and glass and pebble decorating.

The Kiln will be opened by Museum staff who will be giving a guided tour at 11am, 12 noon and 1pm.

We will be running a Catcliffe Heritage Day arts competition for local children to take part in, we are asking children to draw or paint a picture of the Kiln or St Mary’s Church. The images will then be displayed on the day and the Mayor of Rotherham will be awarding the winners with their prizes.

12 of the images will be chosen to make into a 2020 Calendar that will be available in December.
