There's lots to see
and do in Lancashire. A hot air balloon
flight may be perfect for a birthday gift
or special celebration.
Nelson is a close neighbour of Colne
(just a few miles north of Nelson) in north-east
Lancashire. These towns are just to the
north-west of The Forest of Trawden (incl.
Boulsworth Hill, 517), and north of the
larger Lancashire town of Burnley.
To the north-west of Nelson and Colne is
The Forst of Pendle and Pendle Hill (famous
for "Lancashire Witches").
Nelson is within the borough of Pendle.
Recent (2007) news from this area is that
Burnley and Pendle Councils have made a
joint bid to create a new unitary authority,
so local government in this area may change.
This is unlikely to affect visitors to the
area. There is much to see and do around
Nelson, including visiting the "British
in India" Museum, Hollin Hall Sewing Centre,
and Wycoller National Park.
