Our history

After much discussion, our group, formerly known as Penistone & District Society, will now be known as The Penistone Walkers. The change has come about because we would like to attract new members to join the group and, from the feedback we have had, the original name did not give any indication what the society stood for or what we do as a group. Now we have a website, it was thought it would be a good time to introduce the new name and hopefully attract interest from like-minded people out there who might like to join us. However, we have not lost the name Penistone and District Society – Penistone Walkers will be under the umbrella of the original name in financial and legal matters.
