Forest of Bowland – The Forest of Bowland covers 803 km ² in Lancashire and Yorkshire and was designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1964. It is important for its heather moorland, blanket bog and rare birds. The AONB’s population of just 16,000 live mostly in its historic villages, with the remainder in loose-knit hamlets or isolated dwellings in open countryside. Some are estate villages where buildings are of a similar age and architecture, for example Downham, Slaidburn and Abbeystead. It also contains Pendle, where the infamous witch trials took place in 1612. www.forestofbowland.com
Gawthorpe Hall – Affectionately referred to as the ‘Downton of the North’, Gawthorpe Hall was redesigned in the 1850s by Sir Charles Barry, designer of the Houses of Parliament and the ‘real’ Downton Abbey, Highclere Castle. The modest Hall houses the North West’s largest collection of portraits on loan from the National Portrait Gallery as well as The Gawthorpe Textiles Collection, a wonderful collection of intricate lace, embroidery and needlework amassed by Miss Rachel Kay-Shuttleworth. Gawthorpe Hall is the final stop on ‘The Brontë Way’, a long distance route with strong associations with the writings of Charlotte Brontë and the family.
