Torchbearers will then travel along Church Street, where they will stop at Barnsley College at 2pm.

The flame will start its journey again at 3pm, heading along Church Street onto the A635 Huddersfield Road, until it reaches the junction of Rowland Roadat 3.18pm.

Finally, at 3.21pm the Torchbearers will reach Barnsley Road (A637) and head towards Darton. At 3.31pm the Torchbearers will turn left onto Churchfield Lane and travel up Ballfield Lane, before leaving the borough at 3.46pm.
