Once an industrial heartland, South Yorkshire has been transformed into the 21st century, boasting some of the best shopping and family attractions in the North of England. Towns like Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham, are traditional industrial settlements, surrounded by green rolling hills. Penistone is the highest market town in England and the once important inland port of Bawtry still offers an eclectic social scene. Other towns include Maltby and Swinton. A range of new homes in a variety of locations are in demand.
The M1 and M18 motorways join the region with the North West, North East and south towards London. A good network of trains and buses cover the regional and intercity services run north and south from key towns including Doncaster and Rotherham.
