DENBY Dale has gone online to publicise its attractions on the worldwide web.

The village has its own internet website,

It gives potential tourists or curious internet surfers information about the village, its history and attractions.

The website was set up in April as a contact point for people interested in getting broadband internet access in the village.

Enough people registered an interest on the website and BT altered Denby Dale's phone exchange last month to enable it to run the new high- speed internet connection.

But the broadband campaigners decided to keep the site and re-launch it as a community facility.

In August it became a one-stop-shop for Denby Dale information.

Village facilities, bus, train and taxi information, maps, tourist attractions, clubs, sports groups and events are all on the site.

There are also photos of the area and events, along with facts about the village and a local history section.

This features folklore and dialect, as well as information about the village viaduct and River Dearne.

Of course, the village's famous pies are mentioned.

The huge meat dishes have been baked on special occasions for 220 years.

There are even links to other websites.

The website is run on a voluntary basis and makes no profit.

Clubs, groups and individuals are invited to submit material and comments.
