Allotments

The Parish Council currently manages the allotments on Pilley Lane.
The Parish Council will cease to manage the allotments on Pilley Lane after 31 December 2022. 
Details of the new manager will follow when available.

Footpaths

Although the Parish Council does not have any legal duty or responsibility to maintain the footpaths throughout the Parish, there are some beautiful walks and trails in the Parish for residents and visitors to the Parish to enjoy.

Pilley Pocket Park

Pilley Pocket Park is maintained by Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council.
Within Pilley Pocket Park are tennis courts, table tennis, a MUGA and the Parish Council’s beacon. It is the venue for the annual bonfire and many summer events.

Jubilee Park

Jubilee Park is maintained by Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council. The Park is located across the road from St Peter’s Primary School on Westwood New Road in Tankersley.
Although small it contains the Tankersley Centenary War Memorial Bench. This bench was designed by a pupil at St Peter’s Primary School in 2018.

The Plantation and Woodland

The Parish Council owns Broad Ings Wood. Broad Ings Wood and nearby Potters Hole are lovely woods within walking distance of Tankersely and Pilley.
Potters Hole Plantation has been declared as a local nature reserve by Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council and is managed by Parks Services. It is semi-ancient woodland that has been developed in and around old bell pits plus newer planted woodland on a reclaimed colliery site.
