  • Trig artistically painted yellow and blue -photo on trigpointing uk. The medieval village cross, today known as the ‘Butter Cross’ had the go ahead in 2011 for a traffic island to protect it. Monk Bretton Colliery opened in 1870, extracting coal from the Barnsley Seam. The colliery was modernised on nationalisation and pit head baths, which still stand today, were opened.The nearby cemetery is contains the grave of former Barnsley, Manchester United and England striker Tommy Taylor, who was killed in the Munich air disaster on 6 February 1958.
