Hemingfield is a village in the metropolitan borough of Barnsley, South Yorkshire, England.[1] The village falls within the Hoyland Milton Ward of Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council.

In the Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales (1870–72) John Marius Wilson described Hemingfield:

HEMINGFIELD, a village in Wombwell township, Darfield parish, W. R. Yorkshire; 4 miles SE of Barnesley. Pop., 346. It has a post office under Barnesley, and a charity school.[2]

The Elsecar Heritage Railway currently terminates at Hemingfield; however, there is no platform at present, so there are plans to build a proposed Hemingfield railway halt as part of an extension to Cortonwood in the future.

The village was represented in the FA Cup by Hemingfield F.C. in the 1920s.
