Wombwell Home



Hi Everyone

Mark Phillis, who was the previous owner of the site has done such a great job, and has now agreed to transfer the site to me.

I am delighted as I was born and bred in Wombwell and some of the photographs have brought back terrific memories.

I will keep you updated as the site is developed

However to begin with we have included some fascinating stories from our past in the new section:

We are very delighted to bring to you the wombwell-on-the-net web site. This site is mainly an historical referance site for anyone wanting to know what wombwell used to look like.
Wombwell is a former Mining Town situated in the heart of the Dearne Valley with Barnsley to the north and Rotherham to the south.
These days the Mines have gone mostly turned in to area's for walking and to promote wildlife.The Pennine Trail goes through Wombwell using the paths that used to have railway lines to transport Coal up and down the Country.
Wombwell has undergone new housing development that took advantage of of old unused industrial grounds. Today Job opportunities are very different from those around 20 years ago these days we have many more smaller but very good Businesses offering a wide variety of services.
