Lancashire has some interesting places. We visited Slaidburn in the Forest of Bowland with the Friends of the Lancashire Archives. That area has large parts of the Duke of Westminster’s Estate. From the west you can access it from Clitheroe, Longridge or from the A6 near Galgate. You soon enter hilly and isolated areas with very narrow lanes that go on and on, making for slow travel especially the route from the A6 or to Longridge.
Slaidburn features several interesting houses in the surrounding area as well as quaint pub with B&B. The war memorial is also very poignant.
