My friend and I have been brushing up our french at evening classes here. Northern College in Barnsley, is no ordinary college. It is housed in the magnificent Wentworth Castle at Stainborough - once home to the Earls of Strafford. The library is magnificent and is situated in the long gallery on the top floor of the front of the house. I think that this is the room where the gentry would take their walks when it was inclement weather. Its certainly big enough!
