Cannon Hall is situated approximately twenty miles from Doncaster and will take about an hour on the coach. It is well known to most local people for its many on-site facilities and its current television presence so there is sure to be something of interest to everyone.
Lunch will be taken in the White Bull restaurant at 12.30pm in an area especially reserved for us.
The visit to the farm itself is an additional cost to the free amenities and whilst it is of interest it may prove too much for many, especially for those with limited mobility, as there is a lot of walking involved. As well as the usual pigs, sheep, chickens, goats and expected farm animals there are llamas and Highland cattle with ferret races being a frequent feature. If you feel able and wish to visit, please let me know during the meal as tickets must be purchased separately. This is not a problem but obviously it would be wasteful if tickets are bought and then not fully used.
A suggestion for after lunch – arm yourself with an ice cream and just sit and admire the wonderful views of the countryside from the front of the hall. However, if you’re feeling energetic take a tour around the hall, which doubles as a museum and is free to all, or go for a woodland walk, or down to the lake, or browse the wonderful Farm Shop and buy something for next day’s dinner.
We will start the return journey home to Doncaster at 3pm, taking the scenic route with a drive through the Pennines, which will be prettier than the direct route, expecting to return to the carpark at approximately 4.30pm.
As usual all DonMentia events are free to all participants. However, if you drop out after Thursday 21st September, a fee of £15 per person will be payable due to the expenses that will already have been incurred by DonMentia.
