Walks in and around Penistone and the East Peak area

Penistone is surrounded by beautiful and historic countryside and the walks and routes we've included here are designed to help you enjoy it first-hand.

A majority of them are fairly "easy" (more seasoned walkers might prefer something more challenging and we've included one long walk, the Cal-Der-Went) and most can be completed in a reasonable time without having to worry about missing the last bus home!

Facilities, cafes and pubs can normally be found within a reasonable distance, particularly on boundary walks, and these will be listed in the information on each page.

Each of the maps on these pages is constructed using the Google Maps tools and each one can be opened in a larger window and printed for further reference.

Please remember - always follow the Countryside Code

The Countryside Code applies to all parts of the countryside. Most of it is just good common sense, designed to help us all to respect, protect and enjoy our countryside.

Countryside Code logoYou can read the full guidelines at but here are some pointers to remember:

  • Be safe: plan ahead and follow any signs
  • Leave gates & property as you find them
  • Protect plants and animals, take your litter home
  • Keep dogs under close control
  • Consider other people
