About Us

The Royal British Legion turned 90 years old recently, and we are a club full of history within the community. We first started a branch in 1924 at the Blue Ball pub, but shortly after in 1926 we moved into Penistone town centre to the White Bear Inn. this in turn became the club. The club spent many years there until in 1974 when we moved to our purpose built club house, where we are today and hope to be for many years to come.
