is a village
in the metropolitan borough of Barnsley
in South Yorkshire
. It is located about a mile to the south of Penistone
town centre and essentially is now a part of Penistone.
Originally Cubley consisted of the few houses now situated on the southern edge of the village and the associated nearby farms and Cubley Hall (initially a farm and country residence, then an orphanage and now a pub, restaurant and hotel). Now due to extensive building in the 20th and early 21st Centuries these old cottages are now connected right up to Penistone town itself.
Cubley currently has no shops or other services (other than Cubley Hall) serving the village and people have to walk (or catch the bus) for the mile or so trip in to Penistone town centre for their basic shopping.
Cubley has no schools, with most children going to St John the Baptist Infant and Junior Schools in Penistone and then on to Penistone Grammar School
