Barnsley Minors

Barnsley Branch Morris Minor Owners Club


    The Morris Minor Owners Club, with around 12,000 members, is one of the largest classic car clubs in the UK, and the Barnsley Branch extends across much of South Yorkshire. Whilst most of our members are from Barnsley, Doncaster and Sheffield we do have some from further away, in Derbyshire, Lancashire and even in Worcestershire (our Newsletter editor).




    The Barnsley branch has an active calendar of events throughout the year with monthly meetings, trips out to regional and national MMOC rallies as well as the club's own JoGLE run every June from John O'Groats to Lands End.


  • The Barnsley Branch (the original & probably the best branch in the National MMOC that covers the whole of South Yorkshire) draws members from all over the S. Yorks region.  It welcomes all Morris Minor owners especially those who live in and around Doncaster, Rotherham, Sheffield and, of course, Barnsley. However it is not obligatory to live in S. Yorks, as evidenced by many of our existing loyal members who live outside this area.
