History - Alderman's Head Manor is overlooking this part of the Peak Districts "Little Switzerland". The only remaining property from the lost village of Penisale. Sitting on the old salt road which pack horses plied between the Cheshire salt mines and Doncaster. Seven centuries ago, the monks of Kirkstead Abbey in Lincolnshire owned the Manor and the village that nestled in the low lying ground at its feet. The monks have left their mark. Signs of their occupation so long ago can still be seen. Close by is a walled monastery garden where the tonsured monks grew vegetables, and a tiny chapel, no bigger than a cloakroom is tucked into one of the garden walls.

The property has over 700 years of history including an abundance of ancient oak beams and many unusual features which deserve an internal inspection.

Location - Easy access to motorway connections to Manchester, Sheffield etc. Local shopping facilities at
Pensitone which is a short drive away. Stocksbridge is approximately 10 minutes away with the new Fox Valley Shopping centre.
Excellent local schools including Penistone Grammar, Penistone Junior, Primary and Nursery.
