Stepping off the train at Penistone, walk behind the nature reserve for access straight onto the Trans Pennine Trail.
Less than half a mile from the station is the Penistone Paramount independent cinema and music venue that was built in 1914. In the village centre, there are a variety of shops, more than you would expect. Market days under the oak cruck barn in Back Lane take place on Thursdays and Saturdays. Penistone has been a centre of upland farming for centuries and developed its very own breed of sheep capable of withstanding the harsh weather called the Whitefaced Woodland, which we use as a mascot called Pearl for schools’ education on rail safety, ‘keeping ewe safe.’ Visit Café Crème or The Arthouse Café for a bite to eat and a drink, both offer craft and art classes.
