Thurlstone is a village near Penistone in the metropolitan borough of Barnsley. Originally it was a small farming community. Some industries developed using water power from the River Don such as corn milling, wire drawing and various wool and cloth processes.

According to Wikipedia, its name is believed to be of Anglo-Saxon origin, possibly referring to the god Thunor. Other sources argue that its name is taken from thirled – pierced - rock which is found at its location. The nearby village Thurgoland may have a similar derivation.
