Visit Caton and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Caton, Lancashire. Caton is famous because of its association with Turner who painted its celebrated Crook O' Lune. This beautiful curve of the Lune's course is best seen in spring, when it is covered with bluebells. St Paul's Church in the hamlet of Brookhouse has been entirely rebuilt apart from its 500-year-old tower. The Norman doorway has fragments of an Adam and Eve carving.
Claughton, about 5 miles East on the A683, has a Tudor house, Claughton Hall, most of which has been moved uphill from its old site. The church, renewed in the last century, has a bell marked 1296, one of the oldest dated English bells.
St John the Baptist's Church (formerly St Michael's), Perpendicular with large buttresses, is at Tunstall, further North East on the A683. When the Brontė sisters were at Casterton they had to attend this church - the Brocklebridge of Jane Eyre. Since then the 500-year-old glass of the east window has been brought from Belgium and a Roman altar stone found.
Thurland Castle nearby has been rebuilt since the destruction of the interior in the Civil War.
