CAMPAIGNERS have reached a major milestone in their bid to restore a historic Hoyland landmark.
Steve Sylvester, secretary of the Hoyland Lowe Stand Trust, said plans have been given the green light by English Heritage to restore the Grade II listed building back to its former glory.
The stand was built in about 1750 and is believed to have been used as huntsman's lodge and an observation point for hunts in the area.
The group has been working tirelessly to raise funds for the stand for about four years, holding various events, stalls and selling calendars.
Steve said he was very happy with the news and the group was waiting for the paperwork to come through.
