Brierley Origins

  Brierley is an address formally introduced to this locality after firstly choosing title for a designated area opened 1999 called Brierley Forest Park.
  That large country parkland with pathways stretching eastward from northern Huthwaite historically connected similar neighbouring mining areas of Teveral, Skegby and Stanton Hill, all tied within town boundaries of Sutton.
  Much of the land reclaimed site of the old coal pit around which Stanton Hill was built. Although officially titled Sutton Colliery, it remained commonly referred to as Brierley pit because so many South Yorkshire coal miners relocated from that Barnsley area.
  Brierley was therefore an apt choice to reflect a wider shared past industrial heritage. Next saw renaming of the adjoining Huthwaite Golf Course, but opening a newly built 2013 Huthwaite Medical Centre overlooking a maturing influential forest asserted addressing.
