Barnsley In The 1960s

Tuesday May 27 2014



A historical video, found by YouTube user Barnsley Boy, gives a unique glimpse into Barnsley in the swinging 60s.
Do you remember Barnsley being like this? What do you miss about the town?

I remember it well having grown up in the 60s. You could excuse the term dump to some
extent, given the post war era. However what is the councils excuse now?
It is still a depressing place and needs a facelift.
Note the the town hall, HQ of our councillors and mayor of Barnsley are housed, has had a facelift. Including new paving and a water fountain.

really enjoyed this video,what was said is more relevant now than it has ever been before, stop exsisting and start living, there is no need for Barnsley to look like it does now even the commentator at the beginning said it looked awful what was being built but they went ahead and ruined our town anyway.We need the council to look at what the local tradespeople can do not keep looking elsewhere for stupid overpaid plonkers to say yes barnsley needs this that and the other.I would personally like to see the market brought back outside and keep the indoor for specialist weekends,more benches but cctv so if anyone damages them they can be fined and the low lifes booted out.
