Jump is a village in the metropolitan borough of Barnsley in South Yorkshire, England.[1]

According to local legend, Jump village was named Jump after a stream that ran through the village and the local coal miners having to 'jump' over the stream to gain access.

Jump has a small selection of pubs and a Working Mens Club:

Also, the village hosts a traditional Fish and Chip shop, a butcher, a hairdresser, a convenience store and a Post Office. Recently opening in the village is a Sure Start nursery school, which is in the centre of the village. The village also has a local school for young children, Jump Primary School.

Many events are planned in the village mostly to be held in the local park or on the local playing fields. Recent events have included the 'Grand Opening Of The Park', Galas organised by local residents and other community get togethers to raise money for charities.


Two football teams from the village have competed in the FA Cup: Jump Home Guard F.C.[2] and Jump Working Mens Club F.C.[3]
