Welcome to our Tiny Forest

Barnsley's first Tiny Forest was planted on 26 March 2021 in Brickpond, Goldthorpe funded by Barnsley Council. Landscapers and local volunteers from the council helped to plant the saplings (in line with Covid restrictions). The design features two outdoor classroom areas at each end, with a path through the forest, joining them together.
