This highly informative book covers the history of the ancient parish of Penistone from early times to the present day and combines a scholarly account with personal memories of the district in the 1940s. Much of the character of the ancient parish of Penistone was formed in the 19th century, when textile mills, steel works and the railways provided work for the growing population.
