milestone_180pxl.jpgThere’s a little corner of south-west Yorkshire that sneaks into the Peak District National Park – and quite rightly, too. Only half a dozen miles outside Sheffield the area butting up to Derwent Edge is now dotted with reservoirs feeding the surrounding towns and cities.  These dales remain picturesque and dramatic in constantly changing  light. It was great to visit the region again last week after an absence of knocking-on thirty years. Driving back through The Strines towards Penistone I noticed a couple of ancient signposts, presumably marking a parish boundary, the likes of which I’ve not seen before.  I’m sure local historians have the facts to hand and if anyone can tell me a little more about the markings on this one it would be appreciated.
