For hundreds of years, geology has played a significant part in the social and economic development of the Barnsley district; sandstone, mudstone, sand and limestone have been exploited as mineral resources. However, it is coal that has had the greatest impact on the area — the coal industry was the major employer for much of the 18th to late 20th centuries in South Yorkshire, and many pit villages and towns sprang up to provide accommodation for miners. The coal industry has left a legacy of challenging ground conditions including large areas of colliery spoil and infilled ground, which must be treated appropriately when redevelopment takes place.
