Latest reviews | Events in Penistone | 10 Places to Stay

The highest market town in Yorkshire, Penistone was once a major transport hub, but it is now a far quieter place and none the worse for that. At one point Penistone was a junction between the Sheffield to Huddersfield line and the Woodhead line, taking passengers and freight between Manchester and Sheffield, and it even had engineering works to serve this traffic. If evidence in the local parish church, St John the Baptistís, is taken into consideration, Penistone was settled in Saxon times Ė there are signs of a Saxon cross to be found in the church building. The town has had a grammar school for over 600 years, the founding date said to be 1392. It took another three hundred years after that for the place to be granted a market charter, as it was in 1699, but there had been markets held there long before that date. Penistone holds a farmersí market on the second Saturday of every month, but its livestock market closed recently to make way for somewhat controversial town centre development. On the second Saturday in September Penistone has its annual show, another way of cementing its character as an agricultural centre, in spite of the livestock market now having disappeared. The countryside around Penistone is some of the loveliest in South Yorkshire. Some will come across the town while trying an alternative route between Sheffield and Huddersfield, or on their way to Barnsley, to which the town is now linked administratively. It is an attractive place in its own right, but it also makes a great centre for visiting the booming city of Sheffield for its many attractions, and enjoying the peace of rural life in the evening.
