Local Listing heritage project

Do you know of important and cherished buildings, monuments and structures in Barnsley that are not protected?

‘Local Listing’ can help give them some protection against demolition, removal or harmful modification. [Only those of national significance can have statutory listed building status.]

There’s a talk on 1st December to tell us about how we can protect Barnsley’s heritage through ‘Local Listing’.

It’s by Sarah Cattell from South Yorkshire Archaeological Service; Sarah is leading the South Yorkshire Heritage Listing Project.

The project is anxious to use the local knowledge of societies like the BCT to identify the buildings and built structures that we think ought to be listed.

All are welcome whether or not you are BCT members. The talk is at 7.00pm on Wednesday 1st December at the Masonic Hall in Cockerham Lane, off Huddersfield Road, Barnsley S75 1AT.

The Hidden Art of Barnsley

During a period extending over the late 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, a series of wonderful artists emerged in Barnsley.

Barnsley Art on Your Doorstep, a project running from 2012-2014, explored and showcased this rich and very often forgotten aspect of Barnsley’s heritage.

The results: a book  – available for reference in Barnsley Library, a website, and an exhibition at the Cooper Gallery.

Barnsley Civic Trust is delighted to host an illustrated talk and presentation on ‘The Hidden Art of Barnsley: Monday 2nd March at 7.00pm.
The Lightbox – Barnsley’s Central Library.

Art on Your Doorstep team members – Sally Hayles, Hugh Polehampton, Maureen Wilkinson and Fred Thompson – will provide a visual tour of the 2014 exhibition and discuss the publication and its research.

A unique event – not to be missed. Open to all.
