That then is the story: but what does it mean? Are there ‘voices in the stone’, and what story do they tell us? There are important themes to draw out in terms of, on the one hand, the distinctiveness of Barnsley’s culture and its local pride, with on the other hand its connections out into other parts of the coalfield and into both South and West Yorkshire, represented by the support of the West Riding County Council and the flows of students from across the coalfields through the College.

1 He explains how the Mechanics’ Institute was re-founded on a secure footing in 1848, providing a service, as it did, in a large town of 15,000 people, yet one which was still then relatively isolated. He describes the introduction of Cambridge University extension lectures in Barnsley in 1884.

He explains how it lost its prime responsibility for education, and in 1912 moved to Hanson Street, where it provided a library and newsrooms.
