About the area
Benefitting from its Georgian capital city Lancaster, popular for its tourist attractions of Lancaster Castle, Williamson Park and the wonderful Way of the Roses cycling route, Lancashire offers a range of hidden gems you won't want to miss. With Blackpool close-by, you won't be short of things to do with Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Blackpool Tower, the SEA LIFE centre and its 32-acre Zoo.
In Lancashire's Ribble Valley, a little rural community called Langho may be found. The village is divided into two halves, the old and the new. The new Langho was created when the railway was built in the middle of the 19th century, transforming it into a small but nevertheless active commercial centre. Since the Old Langho church was deemed to be too far away, the new church of St. Leonard was constructed in 1879. However, since the construction of the A59 roundabout, even the new church is now somewhat isolated. The historic area of the hamlet is regarded as a true gem, rich in history for tourists to discover. The mediaeval church of St. Leonard was constructed using masonry from Whalley Abbey, which was destroyed in 1537 on Henry VIII's orders. The village has a few little stores, a school, and pubs and restaurants. The larger area, however, has a wealth of attractions to explore, such as Longridge Fell, which is located at the southern tip of the Forest of Bowland AONB. Its summit is perched above a patch of wild forestry and offers stunning views to the north and west, particularly of Fair Snape Fell and the Trough of Bowland. The Dean Clough Resevoir offers further walking paths as well as cycling and mountain riding with some breathtaking scenery, while nearby Whalley offers wonderful walking at Spring Wood and has a fantastic golf club. There are several stores and restaurants in Clitheroe, and you can also visit Clitheroe Castle while you're there. Only 15 miles away in the small village of Turton, on the outskirts of the West Pennine Moors, is Turton Tower, a typical English country house that displays remnants from the Tudor and early Stuart eras. This magnificent region of the North West has a lot to offer, whether you feel like taking a leisurely stroll, going out on a wild night, or learning a lot about history. It encompasses a charming village where you may base your vacation.
