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.

The highest market town in the country – 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.

Penistone Leisure Centre & The Hub Cafe.
