Advertising on the Visit Penistone website

Regular users of Visit Penistone will have noticed that we have introduced advertising to the site. This was done reluctantly but is essential if we're to continue.

Rather than clutter pages with ads we've restricted the amount of space available.

If you'd like to take the opportunity to advertise on these pages, please go to the advertising page. Remember, all the funds raised go towards the maintenance of Visit Pensitone and the promotion of Penistone and the area by the Penistone Tourism Focus Group.
