About this product
- DescriptionThe South Yorkshire town of Barnsley was first described as 'Berneslai' in the Domesday Book. The town has a long and illustrious history and has been associated with the glass-making and coal mining industries. Much of the town centre was constructed in the 1960s and development continues to this day; however, some attractive older buildings survive, including the imposing town hall, which was built in the 1930s. Surrounding Barnsley are Bolton on Dearne, Cudworth, Goldthorpe, Elsecar, Penistone and Wombwell, suburban towns and villages that reflect the importance of industry to the area. Author Peter Tuffrey takes the reader on a fascinating tour of Barnsley and its neighbours, making Barnsley & District Through Time essential reading for anyone who kws and loves this part of South Yorkshire.
