Armed Forces Walkway

Our Armed Forces Walkway is a place for families and friends to sit and remember those who have served and are serving.

Created in partnership with Barnsley College, it provides a dedicated space to commemorate our armed forces personnel. It's located on Westgate Street in the college gardens

Walkway stones

Anyone who has a connection to Barnsley can buy a stone for the walkway. Stones can be bought at any time of the year. You'll need to provide proof of service.  

The content of the stones is limited to:

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

Proof of service 

Any personnel who have left the military since December 2018 will automatically be given an 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.

Cost of stones

Each stone costs £300. This includes VAT, engraving and positioning on the walkway.

After you've placed your order we'll tell you when your stone will be laid.
