Penistone Sheep Trail

Can you find all the flock?

New sheep-themed art trail launched in Penistone

The project is rooted in the heritage of Penistone, where sheep sales have been held for hundreds of years, while the whitefaced woodland breed are also known as Penistone sheep.

The flock includes:

  • A sheep clutching a carton of popcorn, who stands outside the Penistone Paramount Cinema on Shrewsbury Road
  • A cycling sheep on the Trans-Pennine Trail at Penistone Showground
  • A football kit-wearing sheep at Penistone Church Football Club on Church View Road
  • A travelling sheep with a suitcase near Penistone Railway Station off Eastfield Avenue
  • A bookworm sheep outside Penistone Library on High Street
  • A roller-skating sheep at Penistone Leisure Centre on Thurlstone Road
  • Five benches in the form of "grazing" sheep - two outside the Market Hall and three at the playground off Schole Avenue.

The footballing sheep has been ‘adopted’ by fans at Penistone Church FC and named Penny, but the remaining sheep characters will be named in conjunction with children at local schools.

If you spot a sheep around town, why not share a selfie on social media using the hashtag #PenistoneSheep?

The Cottage in Silkstone is beautifully equipped with everything you could need, an extremely comfortable place to relax in and has the all important (for me), perfectly secure outside space for my canine companion, who also appreciated the lovely woodland walks at the back of the house. It is such a well thought out and modern house, but still feels like a country cottage - with luxurious beds! It is the perfect bolthole for an escape to the Peak District and we loved our short stay there. Thanks to Team Silkstone Cottage for making it possible for us to stay in such a lovely place.
