Group name: Barnsley & Penistone
This group is a part of South Yorks & N.E.Derbyshire Area.
Our groups help local people enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk. Most groups organise regular walks led by local experts – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness. You’re very welcome to try walking with us, or to get involved in looking after paths and green spaces and opening up new places to explore.
The main meeting places for weekend walks are:
Birdwell (Moor Lane): Leave the M1 at Jctn 36. Take the A61 to Barnsley and Moor Lane is the first left, only a short distance from the roundabout. Meet behind the old police station - now a centre for spiritual healing. SE 348003
Darton: Public car park, (rear of Post Office) Church Street. SE 311100
Dodworth: Railway station, on main A628 Barnsley Road. SE 311053
