Discover the Beautiful Penistone Line with iFootpath

Another corner of Yorkshire is just waiting to be discovered by iFootpath walkers thanks to a new collaboration between the Penistone Line Partnership and iFootpath. These beautiful walking routes allow you to discover some amazing Yorkshire gems from an iron-age hillfort and a community farm, to stunning abbey ruins and scenic river weirs. This charming area is simply crying out to be enjoyed…

PenistonelinelogoThe Penistone Line is a train line running between Huddersfield and Sheffield, passing through lots of charming villages and crossing some spectacular Yorkshire countryside with woodland, rolling hills, clear rivers and babbling streams. iFootpath has worked with the Penistone Line Partnership to design five walking routes that will take you through the highlights of this wonderful area. Each walk is accessible by train, starting at one Penistone Line rail station and finishing at the neighbouring station, meaning the return leg is a simple train journey taking just a handful of minutes.

The region is teeming with history and you will discover stories of the steel industry, textile production, tailoring services, farming, mining and monastic communities, all celebrated through the preservation of old buildings and the creation of public art.

penistoneberrybrowAs with all iFootpath walks, the routes are richly described with full turn-by-turn directions, historical notes, photos and the all-important live GPS map. Follow the routes using the dedicated iFootpath App and you will see your own live location on the GPS map, meaning you can say goodbye to wrong turns.

We have taken all the hard work out of walking from the Penistone Line, so the only difficult decision you have to make is which of the five routes you will sample first. We think you will be spoilt for choice...

Penistone Line: Sheffield Five Weirs

Penistone Line: Silkstone Waggonway and Woodlands

Penistone Line: Shepley Hills and Higglers

Penistone Line: Berry Brow Fort and Farms

Penistone Line: Barnsley Canal and Cloisters
