Bolton upon Dearne is a small village in South Yorkshire, England in the part of the Dearne valley through which the River Dearne passes. It is approximately seven miles east of Barnsley, ten miles west of Doncaster and eight miles north of Rotherham.

Bolton upon Dearne was an ancient parish, part of the historic West Riding of Yorkshire. It was Recorded in the Domesday Book as being under the Manor of Bolton-upon-Dearne with Goldthorpe which was once owned by Roger de Busli.

In the early 18th century Barnsley Attorney William Henry Marsden Esquire of nearby Burntwood Hall bought the Lord of the Manor of Bolton on Dearne with Goldthorpe for £10,000 together with over a 1000 acres (4 km²) of land. Bolton upon Dearne along with Goldthorpe is recorded in the 1761-1767 Inclosure Awards. The Marsden family continued to hold the Manor until 1815.

It became part of Doncaster Rural District under the Local Government Act 1894 until 1899, when it became a separate urban district in its own right. Bolton upon Dearne urban district was abolished in 1937 under a County Review Order, becoming part of a large Dearne urban district, along with Thurnscoe and part of Barnburgh parish.

It is served by Bolton-on-Dearne railway station.

There are three primary schools in the village, Lacewood Primary and Infant school with an attached Nursery, Carrfield School and Heather Garth Primary School. The main secondary school in the area is The Dearne High School which caters for around 1,300 pupils aged 11-16 years.

The Church of St. Andrew the Apostle (Church of England) is situated on the corner of High Street and Angel Street. It is probably an early 14th century church with alterations throughout the centuries. The current Priest in Charge is Revd David Stafford. There is an active Methodist Church on Furlong Road which was founded in 1832. There was formerly a Roman Catholic church on Station Road, but this closed in the late 1980s, and is now (2007) an electrical goods shop.
