Miller Homes - Honeywell Grange, S75
Honeywell Grange is around ten minutes walk from Barnsley Interchange, a combined bus and railway station with frequent services to Leeds and Sheffield, journeys of around 40 minutes and 35 minutes respectively, and Huddersfield, Nottingham and Chesterfield. The network of buses between Barnsley and the surrounding towns includes a service between Barnsley Interchange and Atherley that passes Honeywell Grange approximately every ten minutes. The development is less than two miles from the M1 junction 37.
Barnsley town centre is a mixture of traditional streets, pedestrianised areas and modern mall shopping, peppered with restaurants, cafés and pubs like the charming Old No 7, one of the bars offering live music. The choice of shops includes high street chains, many of them in the indoor Alhambra Centre, contrasting with the 700 year old market, the Victorian Arcade, and architecture like the stately Town Hall. Household recycling facilities can be found nearby at Smithies Lane Recycling Centre. Cultural activities and entertainments include contemporary art at the Cooper Gallery, film at the Parkway Cinema, and live drama, music and comedy at the Lamproom Theatre.
Just a few yards away Honeywell Sports Village, operated by Barnsley College, provides excellent public gym and fitness facilities, and there are swimming and leisure pools, a state-of-the-art gym and a bowling alley a mile away at the Metrodome Leisure Complex.
The various opportunities for outdoor leisure around the area include the Fleets Dam, popular with walkers and anglers, and the longdistance path along the River Dearne that passes within half a mile of the development. The diversity of green spaces around the town extends from the formal gardens and children’s playground at Wilthorpe Park, a few minutes walk away, to Locke Park and Worsbrough Common at the southern edge of the town and the magnificent Cannon Hall Park and Gardens, five miles to the west. Barnsley and Silkstone Golf Courses are both in easy reach.
