Carlton is a village in the Metropolitan Borough of Barnsley in South Yorkshire, England. It is situated between the villages of Athersley and Royston. The village is part of the Royston, South Yorkshire ward of the Barnsley MBC. It was built up on coking and coal mining industries and now has one of the largest industrial estates within the surrounding area. In the industrial estate lies a glass recycling plant, called Rexam.
An ancient sacred spring or holy well existed near to the modern-day Carlton Road and became associated with St Helen in early Christian times. The name St Helen's was used for a 20th-century secondary school near to the site of the old well (merged with Edward Sheerien School in 1992 to form Carlton Community College). The school is now known as Outwood Academy Carlton.
Carlton has its own village group www.carltonvillage.co.uk that is accessible to all villagers.
