the earth centre went into administration in october 2004, it has remained closed to the public eversince.
recently curious public have been escorted off by armed police! walkers have been met with access denied to the penine way which is situated behind the earth centre and requires you cross a bridge to get to it, they closed the bridge a public right of way!
the mayor at the time martin winter said: "I am determined that the ethos of the earth centre site is preserved for future doncaster generations… I intend to set up an advisory group to help me guide the future of the earth centre site and this will include community and former earth centre trustees."
don valley mp caroline flint said she welcomed confirmation that the Earth Centre would be taken over by doncaster council, saying that the commission would only agree if the council maintained the educational work performed by the centre.
5 years on and the site remains derelict and closed to the public, however the council made sure that at least someone got use of it.......
