This Weekend 20th and 21st January Huddersfield Station will be closed. There will be a bus replacement between Huddersfield and Penistone (all stations) and trains will run between Penistone and Sheffield.
Please note that only folding bikes, scooters, wheelchairs and pushchairs will be permitted. Plus guide and hearing dogs only.
All bus pick ups are at the station, with the exception of Lockwood which is on Lockwood Road.
So, a new year has come and what does that mean to us? Well, for many of us the start of a new year means making new resolutions and all about starting new ways of doing things. For the Penistone Line Partnership 2018 is all about CELEBRATION! We celebrate our 25th anniversary this year, so will be carrying on as usual with all the great things we do (if it ain’t broke why fix it eh?) but of course we will be celebrating all the things we have achieved in the last 25 years! So, why not join us on the Penistone Line, for new adventures if you have never been on the Penistone Line or perhaps to re-new adventures of old! Share your adventures with us on twitter @penistone line #PLP25years
We have been made aware of a dispute being announced for Monday 8th/ Wednesday 10th / Friday 12th January 2018. We will share full details once they become available.
At the weekend we had lots of happy walkers on our guided walk. If you haven’t been on one of our guided walks, why not take a look at the programme and plan one in. They are now conveniently on their own page on our website
We are still looking for books to fill our shelf on Platform 2 Huddersfield Station – why not have a pre-christmas clear out and donate?
Stuck for activities for the children to take part in at half term (w/c 23rd October 2017)? Nature’s Footprints are offering FREE forest school workshops at Huddersfield’s Beaumont Park. Beaumont Park is located approximately 15 minutes walk from Lockwood Station. The places are limited so book up quick! They really are a fantastic for children to be at one with nature.
Rowena continues her Rail safety talks today with a visit to St Peter’s school in Birstall. A bit further away from the Penistone Line but we are always pleased to share the Rail safety message and promote our lovely Penistone Line!
Help shape the future of West Yorkshire’s transport
West Yorkshire Combined Authority is looking for members of the public to be part of our Kirklees District Transport Consultation Sub-Committee.

We are pleased to have worked with ifootpath to create 5 new walks from the Penistone Line. The walks information can be accessed by the website www.ifootpath.com or through the ifootpath app. Why not use this as the perfect excuse to explore the area surrounding the Penistone Line.
