Armed Forces Walkway

Our walkway is a place for families and friends to sit and remember those who have served and are serving

Our new HM Armed Forces Walkway, created in partnership with Barnsley College, has provided a dedicated space to commemorate our armed forces personnel. It's located on Westgate Street in the college gardens

The stones

Stones are limited to:

  • name, rank and service number - we cannot accept nicknames
  • emblem - we can include one official emblem to represent the unit served
  • name of unit 

Stones can be purchased at any time of the year. You'll need to provide proof of service.  

Anyone who has a connection to Barnsley can purchase a stone.


Each stone costs £250. This includes VAT, engraving, positioning on the walkway and maintenance.

Once you've placed your order your stone will be made and installed within 2 months.

Proof of service 

Any personnel who have left the military since December 2018 will automatically be given a new ID card.  The card is designed to give you easier access to public and charitable support including healthcare and housing, as well as providing retail discounts. 

You can find out more about the veterans ID card at GOV.UK or get a copy of military service records.
