Lancashire is a beautiful county in the North-West of England, it borders Cumbria, Yorkshire, Cheshire, Merseyside and Greater Manchester and has two cities of Preston and Lancaster.
Lancashire is made up of many hidden gems…
Its not all grim up North. Although to many people, Lancashire might bring to mind our industrial heritage of mill towns, flat caps, pie eaters, football and cricket.
In Lancashire we are lucky to have the beautiful countryside of the Forest of Bowland, Pendle Hill, Rossendale Valley and the West Pennine Moors. As well as the coastlines of the West Lancashire Coastal Plain, the Fylde, Morecambe and Silverdale.
There are beautiful treasures to visit, historical houses and parkland, such as Lytham Hall in Lytham St Annes, Astley Hall in Chorley, Townley Hall in Burnley, Hoghton Towers near Preston, plus the National Trust properties of Gawthorpe Hall and Rufford Old Hall.
We also have some great market towns, such as: Garstang, Chorley and farmers markets such as the monthly market in the lovely setting of Hoghton Towers.
