John Edwards, Chair of the Wentworth Castle and Stainborough Park Heritage Trust said: “We’re having encouraging and positive discussions with a view to securing a sustainable future for Wentworth Castle estate.
“All parties are committed to finding a solution that will protect the public investment and keep the site open and accessible to the public. This continues to be the first priority of all trustees and stakeholders.
“We would like to thank the loyal and hardworking volunteers who turn up every week and support the gardening team to ensure that the gardens and woodland are maintained. As well as gardening and ongoing maintenance, there is a logging team who are extremely active and generating income for the site, and archivists who are recording important documents.”
