The Leeds Mechanics’ Institute was second with 1,852, Huddersfield Mechanics’ Institute tenth and Barnsley Mechanics’ Institute 119th, out of 734. Table 1 shows Barnsley Mechanics’ Institute’s position in relation to membership for the whole country in 1851. In the Yorkshire Union of Mechanics’ Institutes, Barnsley was ranked seventh largest out of 148 in 1851 (see Table 2). There would be, in total 633 institutes belonging to the Yorkshire Union between 1838 and 1900. Hudson’s work indicates that mechanics’ institutes were located throughout Britain, with the highest concentrations being found in Yorkshire, Lancashire and in and around the city of Glasgow (see Map 1): Table 1: Rank Order by Membership of some Mechanics’ Institutes in Britain.

The effect of this decision was inevitably to lever much more money from the West Riding County Council into what became the Mining College. Further, the West Riding County Council operated in collaboration with The Yorkshire College in Leeds (now, of course, the University of Leeds) and Firth College, Sheffield (now the University of Sheffield), both of which had very significant mining departments. The West Riding decision to focus on the Barnsley Mining School, therefore, meant the benefit of links with the Sheffield and Leeds departments, and the Mining School seems to have been developing successfully in the years before the First World War.

By the late 1920s he was achieving a much wider impact, including a commission for the new parliament building for Northern Ireland at Stormont (1927–32). 8 Meanwhile, Charles Smith was the contractor responsible for many of the newly appearing council houses around Barnsley. 9 We might also find significance in the cost of the building–which was huge. The site accounted for £9,352; the building itself £79,660; and furniture and equipment £26,000. Equivalencies are always hard to make, but we should remember the building craftsmen who working on the project in 1932 might have earned £3 10s per week.
