[edit] History

Mapplewell began life as a hamlet, as it grew in size it began to merge with neighbouring hamlet, Staincross and ever since the histories of the villages have been linked together. As in Staincross, nail making was an important industry in Mapplewell in the 17th Century. However by the late 1800s mining was the predominant source of employment, after the sinking of a deep mine in North Gawber. In 1761, John Wesley preached in Mapplewell, at a time when villagers had to go to the church in neighbouring Darton to worship. After Wesleys visit, many chapels were built in the village, of which only a few remain.[1]

[edit] Geography

Mapplewell is lies around three miles north of Barnsley, situated at approximately 53°35'11?N 1°30'9?W? / ?53.58639, -1.5025 and at an elevation of around 100 metres above sea level.
