Clitheroe UK

The traditional market town of Clitheroe lies to the East of Lancashire with the Forest of Bowland to the North West and the Yorkshire Dales to the North East. It is a popular tourist area and has spectacular scenery and walks.

In the town centre there are many unique, independent shops selling everything from arts and crafts to fresh local produce. The world famous Clitheroe sausage originated from here and is now so popular that it now has its own dedicated annual festival day. Another annual local event is the Ribble Valley Jazz Festival that made a comeback in 2010 after a 40-year break.

There is an impressive Norman Castle which is well visited and nearby Pendle Hill, another historic place of interest attracts tourists wishing to see where in 1612, ten witches were hung (The Pendle Witches). Congregations gather here every Halloween to pay respects to the hanged women.
