Clitheroe

As with many of Lancashire’s towns, Clitheroe has a heritage of mills and textiles and it’s still a successful base for manufacturing. It’s also a family-friendly and historic market town with local landscapes to rival its landmarks. It’s in the Ribble Valley, with Pendle Hill on one side and the Forest of Bowland on the other, setting it a little bit apart from its busy neighbours – Blackburn, Burnley and Accrington – and it’s on the way to the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Preston, Manchester and Liverpool are easy to reach on the network of motorway routes in this part of Lancashire, making Clitheroe a popular choice for commuters.

Main roads

Clitheroe is on the A59 which heads all the way to Harrogate to the east and Preston to the west, with the A65 branching off to the north and Cumbria. It also makes the connection with Junction 31 of the M6 for north-south travel throughout the North West.  If you want to get off the beaten track, you can take the back roads out of town and take to the hills.

The great outdoors

This is a great location for days out of town, for hill walking, mountain biking and just getting away from it all. If you want to get off the beaten track, you can take the back roads out of town and take to the hills. Pendle Hill is quite a landmark, rising above the flat landscapes of the Lancashire plains. The Forest of Bowland shares itself between Lancashire and Yorkshire, all 310 square miles of it.
