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

Walkway 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.

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.

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.
