“a walk to Keppels Column”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2013

At first you think this is nothing much but once you get up close it is really is amazing. it was built about 130 years ago and has a strange buldge in the middle. It can be seen for miles and we always wanted to get up close. You can find in via some back roads in the middle of an estate.

you cannot go to the top as it has been closed due to the fact it is falling down with being so old.

“Race You!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2013

Great memories of this landmark Rotherham folly. Used to ride our horse (RIP) through Scholes Wood, gallop across the heath and slow down by circling round the column. He was a bit of a handful! Returned for a more placid dog walk recently, and enjoyed looking again at this piece of Wentworth history. Sadly, still not able to visit the interior, as unsafe and there are no plans to repair and reopen. The view from the top must have been magnificent. It's history is interesting, for anyone needing more information read Geoffrey Howse' guide to Wentworth Monuments. Suggest including visit to Column as part of a walk round Scholes Wood and village, and see if you can find the ancient hill fort as well. Even better if you visit on horseback, using the bridle paths all around, and end with a pint for horse and rider at the Bay Horse in Scholes!
