With Coronavirus restricting life inside, ever more people are moving to the great outdoors. The town parks and countryside surrounding Pendle Hill are perfect places to enjoy the outside.
Pendle Heritage Centre
A visit to the Pendle Heritage Centre can include a wander around the Walled Garden and a family walk through Bluebell Wood before, perhaps, a walk along the Higherford Water Power Trail or through Barrowford Park.
Wycoller Country Park
A short drive eastwards on the M65 lies Wycoller Country Park, a wilder place to walk but where there are car parks, a cafe and a visitor centre. Wycoller’s medieval vaccary walls. historic clothiers houses and ancient barns all enrich a great place for walkers. Much loved by the Brontë sisters of Haworth, Wycoller is also rich in birds and other wildlife.
