Royston is a suburban village within the Metropolitan borough of Barnsley, in South Yorkshire, England. Historically it was in the West Riding of Yorkshire, but was incorporated into the Metropolitan borough of Barnsley in 1974 and is now on the border with West Yorkshire. It is part of the Barnsley Central borough constituency, and has a population of 9,375.HistoryOriginally a farming village, Royston joined the industrial revolution with the construction in the 1790s of the Barnsley Canal, and later a branch of the Midland Railway. Both are now disused. Royston had a colliery, a clay works and brick works but these are all now closed, although a coke works operated until recently on the mine site processing coal brought in by road. A large shirt factory with the brandname Valusta provided local employment from the 1940s through to the 1980s.GeographyRoyston lies on the Barnsley Canal, and on the intersection of the B6132 and B6428 roads, due north of Monk Bretton at an elevation of around 75 metres above sea level. The Trans Pennine Trail runs through Royston along the canal bank. The parish is part of the diocese of Wakefield.
