Stephanie Visits Stairfoot Art Tribute

As reported in the Barnsley Chronicle on 25th October, Stephanie recently met with local Councillor Wayne Johnson to discuss an art installation on the Trans-Pennine Trail in Stairfoot, which celebrates Stairfoot’s heritage.

The art was installed by the Stairfoot Station Heritage Park group, which was founded in 2017 with the aim of establishing a historical record of Stairfoot, which is being recorded on the group’s website.

The art installation is based on the site of the old Stairfoot railway station.

Commenting, Stephanie said:

“Here in Barnsley, we’re blessed with such a rich and proud industrial heritage, from mining to the important role of our local railways in shaping our area.

“That’s why I’m so pleased that the Stairfoot Station Heritage Park group has been founded, to record and preserve that heritage, and it was fantastic to learn about this impressive work of art commemorating another central part of our area’s rich history.”
