Cawthorne Parish Council's Privacy Policy

Cawthorne is a rural parish in South Yorkshire, three miles to the west of Barnsley.
It is an old parish, dating back to at least the late 11th century, with some buildings from the 15th century still in use today. The centre and hub of the parish is the village of Cawthorne, with some 1000 residents living in about 530 households. The remainder of the parish is rural, with a considerable number of working farms. Cannon Hall and park owned and managed by Barnsley MBC, is open to the public. There are a number of small businesses in the village; a Post Office, newsagent/old fashioned sweet shop, village store and tea room, the Spencer Arms pub, Beatson House Restaurant, an antiques centre, Gallery 2 gift and card shop, and guest houses. The larger businesses in the parish are Naylors who manufacture clay pipes, Cannon Hall Garden Centre & Cafe and Cannon Hall Open Farm which incorporates a farm shop, café and restaurant and hosts various festivals throughout the year.
The village has a Methodist Chapel and All Saints Parish Church. The Village Hall and church owned Parish Rooms host various activities and both are available to hire. The Cawthorne Victoria Jubilee Museum is a small museum full of an eclectic mix of items.
There are numerous social and recreational groups active in the parish, ranging from the church bell ringers to the Young Farmers, with all manner of other groups catering for toddlers up to and including the most senior of citizens. There is a cricket ground, a football pitch and two social clubs. There is a good community spirit in the parish, evidenced by frequent public events such as the Summer Fete and the Open Gardens which are held alternate years.

Cawthorne Post Office has been selected as a Regional Finalist in the Annual Countryside Alliance Rural Oscar Awards - Category Village shop/Post Office.
After 3 previous nominations we are delighted to be shortlisted and the only South Yorkshire Business represented in any of the categories.
We will be facing the judging panel sometime in March/April and maybe, we will make the final to be held in London later in the year.  Either way, we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who voted and all of our customers and friends who continue to support our business.

This notice is to advise that the following green spaces/local heritage assets have been identified as such in the NDP and to ask whether they have any comments to make before the NDP is published for informal consultation in April.  There will be further opportunities to comment at formal consultation stages later this year.  Please email with any comments.
