Churchfields Peace Gardens

The public artwork commissioned by Barnsley Council in 2016 to remember the many brave soldiers who fell in the Battle of the Somme, will now be on permanent display in Churchfield Peace Gardens - just opposite St Mary's Church.



Visitors can see the artwork in its new location and can find out more about the project itself. New interactive interpretation panels have been created to sit alongside the artwork.  By downloading the Aurasma app visitors to the memorial can use mobile devises to view footage and images about the creation of the project and those brave men seen on the Perspex panels.
