Clitheroe, Lancashire

There's lots to see and do in Lancashire. A hot air balloon flight may be perfect for a birthday gift or special celebration.

The ancient market town of Clitheroe has the remains of a 12th century castle built on a limestone crag on a 16 acre site. It received its first charter in the 12th century. Schools in Clitheroe include a 13th century Royal Grammar School and Ribblesdale High School and Technical College. The Town is reached from the M6 and the A59 to Skipton. Pendle Hill (557m) is east of Clitheroe and is reputed to have had some connection with the ‘Lancashire Witches’. Clitheroe is situated to the north-west of Manchester (30 miles) and north-east of Preston (20 miles). Low Moor, the early water-powered mill (later Steam) built by the Garnet Family but closed recently, made Clitheroe a cotton spinning and textile manufacturing town in the 18th & 19th centuries. The town also manufactured plaster for the building trade from the local limestone. It is well-known locally for ‘Cowman’s Sausages.’ The town has a new Road and rail Interchange which houses an art gallery in the railway section. Clitheroe library was built in 1905 by The Carnegie Trust and extended in 1090 into the adjacent building, where once stood the Moot Hall/Courthouse now a Grade 11 listed building. Local sports facilities are provided at the Roefield Leisure Centre, Bowling Greens and The Ribblesdale Pool. The Roman Catholic public co-educational school of Stonyhurst College in the village of Hurst Green is also close to Clitheroe.
