Route Outline

This linear Barnsley walk starts and finishes at Penistone station (grid ref. SE251032). Being a one-way walk, the return journey relies on the hourly train service from Shepley back to Penistone. There is some parking at Penistone station and even more at the car park next to the Paramount cinema/theatre which is nearby. The cinema itself is well worth a visit at some other time as it is one of very few cinemas that still has an interval for ice-creams and drinks from the bar.
