Persimmon Homes


Oswaldtwistle has a rich cultural and industrial heritage. It was the birthplace of James Hargreaves who invented the Spinning Jenny - and home to the Leeds and Liverpool Canal that was responsible for much of the area’s textile trading prosperity. Today, this Pennine Waterway is perfect for walking, cycling and watching the narrowboats drift by.

Industrial landmark, Oswaldtwistle Mill now hosts an award-winning shopping village and craft market. As well as big brand shopping, your new build in Oswaldtwistle has a bustling high street with plenty of local businesses, a butcher's, takeaways, a pizza parlour, a few pubs and a garden centre. From your new home, Church & Oswaldtwistle railway station is a short distance to the north-east, great road links to Blackburn and Manchester are nearby, and the unspoilt Oswaldtwistle Moors are on your doorstep.

Closer to home, it’s only four miles into the centre of Blackburn. Preston is 20 miles away and Burnley is 12 miles away from your new build, so if you're a commuter, your new property in Oswaldtwistle is a great base to call home.

From nights out to workouts

Your new home in Oswaldtwistle strikes the perfect balance between city and country. The bright lights and nightlife of Manchester are to the south and the landscapes and night skies of the Forest of Bowland are to the north. Near your new build, Oswaldtwistle Moor is one of a series of natural open spaces connecting with the West Pennine Moors - offering excellent opportunities to hike, bike or stargaze into the night sky. If you prefer fitness with a roof, the Hyndburn Leisure Centre is a venue shared by Oswaldtwistle and Accrington - somewhere you can gym, swim or enjoy a coffee at softplay.

Great entertainments close to home

A central hub of your new home, Oswaldtwistle, is Rhyddings Park, which includes a Kitchen Garden, shop and café thanks to a great community initiative. The town hosts lots of different festivals and events including the town's carnival and Galactic Festival.
