Bolton Upon Dearne Tourism

Bolton upon Dearne is a small village in the Metropolitan Borough of Barnsley, South Yorkshire, England, in the part of the Dearne Valley through which the River Dearne passes. Historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, it is approximately 7 miles (11 km) east of Barnsley, 10 miles (16 km) west of Doncaster and 8 miles (13 km) north of Rotherham. Bolton upon Dearne was an ancient parish. It was recorded in the Domesday Book as being under the Manor of Bolton-upon-Dearne with Goldthorpe, which was once owned by Roger de Busli. In the early 18th century Barnsley attorney William Henry Marsden Esquire of nearby Burntwood Hall bought the Lord of the Manor of Bolton on Dearne with Goldthorpe for £10,000 together with over 1,000 acres (4 km²) of land. Bolton upon Dearne along with Goldthorpe is recorded in the 1761–1767 Inclosure Awards. The Marsden family continued to hold the Manor until 1815. It became part of Doncaster Rural District under the Local Government Act 1894 until 1899, when it became a separate urban district in its own right. Bolton upon Dearne Urban District was abolished in 1937 under a County Review Order, becoming part of a large Dearne Urban District, along with Thurnscoe and part of Barnburgh parish. At the 2011 Census the village had become part of the Dearne South Ward of the Barnsley Metropolitan Council. The village is served by Bolton-on-Dearne railway station. There are three primary schools in the village: Carrfield School, Heather Garth Primary School and Lacewood. The main secondary school in the area is Dearne Advanced Learning Centre, which caters for around 1,200 pupils aged 11 to 16 years. The Church of St Andrew the Apostle (Church of England) is situated on the corner of High Street and Angel Street. It was a 10th-century church with alterations made throughout the centuries. There is a Methodist Church on Furlong Road which was founded in 1832. There was formerly a Roman Catholic church on Station Road, but this closed in the late 1980s, and became an electrical goods shop.
