AN HISTORIC Rotherham woodland — containing an Iron Age fortification — has become the first in South Yorkshire to win a prestigious award.

The Centre of Excellence award will be made to council-owned Scholes Coppice near Thorpe Hesley by the Forestry Authority, part of the Forestry Commission.

Mayor of Rotherham, Cllr Sheila Walker, will accept the prize on Sunday during an afternoon of activities at the 54-acre wood, including the ancient Caesar’s Camp, to mark the occasion.
