The Pennine Heart of Yorkshire South. The Penistone area is one of the most scenic parts of South Yorkshire, situated on the west side of Barnsley and partially within the Peak District National Park. It is an area of villages set in gently rolling, wooded hills which gradually rise westwards to the moorlands of the Dark Peak. The market town of Penistone is in the heart of this area, less than six miles west of the M1 motorway.

The main attractions in the town are the monthly farmers' market and weekly retail and country markets. There are also regular organ concerts at the Penistone Paramount.

Annual events such as the Penistone Show in September, Mayor's Gala, Well dressing, community bonfire and summer flower festivals bring the town to life.

The Trans Pennine Trail runs through the middle of Penistone, a great place to walk or take the family bikes.
