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 drainage 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 Church is open to the public in the summer months on a Saturday from 2.00pm - 5.00pm to give members of the public the chance to see the very fine Pre-Raphaelite Art in the form of panels by Evelyn de Morgan and Roddam Spencer Stanhope and the fine stained glass windows, including one to a design by Burne-Jones. 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.         

Cannon Hall Farm and White Bull Cafe will close as from Thursday, 5 November until the end of lockdown, Wednesday, 2 December inclusive. A Takeaway service for fish & chips and hot sandwiches plus tea and coffee is available from the Kiosk.  The Farm Shop remains open and a brand new click and collect Christmas shopping service is available to customers.  Festive order book open now.  Please contact them on their Facebook page, Instagram and YouTube or www.cannonhallfarm.co.uk.
