Artwork commemorating the fallen of World War One has been installed in Barnsley town centre.

Architectural glass specialist Rachel Welford has created the three columns made from toughened glass in Barnsley Pals Centenary Square.

The largest piece is at the top of the steps in the town hall gardens and the other two are near bedding areas. Each piece relates to a different time during the war - recruitment, the war, and homecoming.

The project is part of Barnsley Council’s public art programme and is being delivered by charity, Beam.

Cabinet spokesman Coun Roy Miller said: “This is a poignant and though-provoking piece of artwork commemorating all the fallen of World War One, which will provide a lasting memory to the sacrifice made.”
