Just three miles from Spicer Manor is the market town of Penistone. With an array of independent shops, a picturesque church and a weekly market, the town is worth a visit. For film fans the 105-year-old Paramount cinema offers a trip down memory lane. It is also home to one of the few remaining theatre organs in the country.
The annual Mayor’s Parade in June and the agricultural show in September attract visitors from across the country.
Penistone is also the place where you can join the Trans Pennine Trail. This section of the trail follows the route of the historic Woodhead railway line, making it an easy cycle ride even for younger children. Look out for the weird and wonderful sculptures along the route, and the spooky curved tunnel. Penistone Cycle Hire, situated directly alongside the trail, will provide bikes for all ages if you can’t bring your own, and there is also a free on-site car park.
