Early History - The first building here was a Georgian house built amongst some older cottages adjacent to the track which is also called Darley Grove. At that time the track was the main road from White Cross to Ward Green as there was an active quarry to the north so the two ends of what is now Bank End Road were not connected.
The comparative grandeur of the house was due to its links with the coal owners who lived at the original Darley House. (Originally on the site of the old White Cross School) It was owned by the Foulks family, the financiers to Micheal Main and Wombwell Wood collieries. At this time coal was producing enormous wealth for some and the house was soon extended to the East by two large ground floor reception rooms and corresponding bedrooms. The early Victorian period saw further investment. Another set of rooms was added to the East and the frontage adjusted to give the two Victorian bay windows. Inside the main stairs of the original house were replaced with servants' stairs and a bathroom block added to the rear. This was connected to an old cottage to form a nursery wing. The new build saw two more reception rooms and a kitchen. Above were three bedrooms, the master having a dressing room with its own entrance for the lady of the house! A cellar was set out with fish tanks so that the household could have fresh produce. Outside the gardens were formed with the addition of a stable block, driveway, a tennis court with a summer house together with vegetable areas with greenhouses.
Not too much appeared to change throughout the rest of the 19th century, but the family had no heirs and by the depression the property was too big and costly for them. The two extensions were adapted to form two properties and sold to a local farmer (who then farmed above Bank End Road) who allocated them to his workers.
In the 1960's the two extensions were once again turned into one and eventually sold to the current owner in 1978.
Location - The property is located to the South of Barnsley and the site slopes away from the main properties to the South affording stunning views over the Worsbrough Valley.
The centres of Barnsley, Doncaster and Sheffield are readily accessible by car with excellent communications via the M1 and A1 M.
Local shops and amenities are also available closer to hand.
