The town where I live has a football team who play in the first division. We are near the M1 motorway and the A1. This means we have good access to both the north and the south of the country. we are never far from the countryside or the seaside.

the town of Barnsley is very small. There is not much to do here, and should you want to try some activities, you would need to travel to a nearby city. The two closest cities are Leeds and Sheffield. One bright side to Barnsley is that house prices are rather low.
