Welcome to our website; our aims are set out on the 'About Us' section of our site.

We are continuing our efforts to research, understand and tell the story of the village which we call home in order to provide you with an informed and accurate discussion of life in Whiston throughout its history. Should you wish to contribute to this information, please contact us.

About Us:

Whiston is a picturesque village located in South Yorkshire, close to the town Rotherham. It has a number of listed buildings; several of which have a history associated with them. The most significant of these is the Manorial Barn - the only such building of its kind in the north of England. In addition, there are a number of pleasant walks around the village; and many public houses, which provide traditional refreshment.
