Late night shopping. Its bad enough and not safe through the day never mind at night. Go to medowhall instead. Much better than Barnsley. Wot a dump Barnsley is.

Barnsley town centre probably wouldn't be as bad if people actually used it to shop rather than sit in the town centre and drink, I moved to Barnsley 2 years ago and I really like it here, it's just a shame a few idiots spoil it for everyone

No its not people like us. Its the sheeple that keep voting in the same old dross council every year. I would rather spend money in town than give it elsewhere. But im not spending it in a dump thats full of drunks, druggies, scrubbers and chavs and i wont take my kids there either. We have the worst town centre in yorkshire and thats saying something, its an embarrassment and we're a laughing stock to any visitors people look down on us as we are judged by the state of our town centre.

Noones denying that it's gone down hill and it is an absolute disgrace, but it's my home town and I'm not ashamed to say it's where I live I travel the country and believe me there are alot of worse places than barnsley, infact barnsley is quite a place compared to some places in England. It's the law that let's it down everyone is too lenient these days there's no respect, manners and no authority, it doesn't mean that the people who are of working class and proud of where they live can't have an opinion on people who slate barnsley. And as for the kids bit I really think that's a little bit far.

Totally agree with you Barsley isnt the worst town by a long shot. And whatever barnsley council try to do people will still sit on their backside and slate them.
I would much rather support local traders than the big chains in meadowhall trawling round the lanes like cattle...
