    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Barnsley Main is a rare survivor of South Yorkshire’s rich mining heritage. The buildings stand as a reminder of an industry that powered the Industrial Revolution and shaped the lives of communities.

    The site of Barnsley Main was mined for over 170 years under different names until final closure in 1991. Today the winding and engine house appear isolated but they were once part of a bustling complex of buildings.

    The Barnsley Main Heritage Group (BMHG) was formed in late 2016 with the support of the Dearne Valley Landscape Partnership (DVLP) and the Barnsley Council Central Area Team.

    BMHG are working to implement plans produced by the DVLP to protect, preserve and enhance the Barnsley Main buildings and wider site.

    As the next stage in our development we would like to create a website to share the History of coal production on this site over 170 years. This website will become an educational resource that will tell the story of Barnsley Main and Barnsley’s rich and varied mining heritage. We will also use this website to share what we have been doing and keep people updated with our plans.

      Not a miner but a great interest in mines and those that worked there.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
