Barnsley and District U3A
Although Barnsley’s heritage is rooted in the industrial revolution and principally mining and glassmaking, there is very little left of such industries now. The pit heads have been taken down and the slag heaps turned back to pasture. Surrounded by ancient villages, historic parkland and bordering onto the Peak District, Barnsley has some excellent places to visit for those wanting to delve into history or get back to nature. Within the Town Hall itself there is a brand new Experience Barnsley Museum that gives a good insight into the area. Our members come from within the town itself plus the many outlying villages and our groups use facilities all over the borough.
