Visit Clitheroe and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:

Clitheroe, Lancashire. is a very old Ribble Valley town, now an industrial centre but with a pleasant country atmosphere and delightful walks in the locality. The town is the second oldest borough in Lancashire (Wigan is the oldest) and gained its charter in 1147. Traces of the Roman road from Ribchester to Yorkshire can be seen. Pendle, the 1,831-ft hill on the east is the reputed old haunt of witches. The castle on its limestone crag in the town is a dominant landmark. It was built in the 12th century before Lancaster castle; held first by Roger de Poitou, then the de Lacys until 1311, it was a Royalist stronghold in the Civil War and then had various owners. In 1920 it was bought for the town and now much of the 16-acre grounds is a recreational area. Little remains apart from the keep with its 9-ft walls, of interest as one of the oldest stone structures in Lancashire and as the smallest keep in England. St Mary Magdalene Church, on a lesser knoll, has been the site of a church for more than 800 years. In the early 19th century the church was dismantled and rebuilt, a twisted spire being added later. The bells were recast in 1658. The Town Hall has the sculpted arms of the de Lacys (the Lords of Lancaster), and carving by a local craftsman inside. An attractive building is the Royal Grammar School; it was founded in 1554, but there is evidence that a school existed as far back as the 13th century. A notable headmaster was the Rev. T. Wilson, who in the 18th century compiled the Archaeological Dictionary and dedicated it to Dr Johnson, receiving a flattering acknowledgement. Low Moor, now closed, was a large Lancashire mill built by the Garnett family of Waddow Hall. They built a little self-contained township round the mill, and were connected with the foundation of the Manchester Guardian.
