Persimmon Homes The Shires – a choice of two, three, four- and five-bedroom homes in Oswaldtwistle
Oswaldtwisle is an attractive small town with a stunning backdrop of some of Lancashire’s finest countryside. Situated just 3 miles southeast of Blackburn, it’s conveniently close to the urban areas of Accrington and Church. The Leeds and Liverpool Canal also passes through the town.
The town is famous for being home to Oswaldtwistle Mills, an award-winning shopping village which has a huge selection of treats, trinkets and gifts to suit any occasion. The former weaving mill has over 100 retailers, including an impressive womenswear department with over 40 popular brands. There’s also a new home & lifestyle centre, crafts centre, homewares, furniture, lighting, unique giftware, a gourmet deli selling locally-made food, and much more. And when you’re in need of refreshment, there’s a good choice of places to eat and drink.
Nearby is Rhyddings Park. Originally the grounds of a private house belonging to a local mill owning family, the park has been public since 1909. Within the park is a children’s play area, a bowling green, woodland garden, and an all-weather area for a variety of sports including football, cricket and basketball. The Civic Arts Centre is also close by and is involved in local heritage projects, and puts on some amazing outdoor festivals.
There are plenty nearby schools including Hippings Methodist Primary School, St. Mary’s RC Primary School, St. Andrew’s CE Primary School, Broadfield Specialist School and White Ash Specialist School, to name just a few.
With its range of amenities, great choice of local schooling options, and range of convenient transport links, The Shires could be the perfect place for you to call home.
