Here is one of five floor mosaics I created commissioned by Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council to be included in some major groundworks in Athersley,
Five primary schools in Athersley were included in the design process and each design has relevance to the area.
The Roundhouse – Athersley North Primary School
In the 18th century, a gatehouse was built at the entrance to a Manor Farm, on what is now the A61 road. This round structure remained there throughout the building of the estates of New Lodge and Athersley. It was located at the junction of the A61 Wakefield Road and Laithes Lane but was demolished in the early 1960’s. This junction, around which the local commercial and shopping centre was built, became known locally as the “Roundhouse”.
