Clitheroe Tips

For a great view over the town of Clitheroe and the surrounding countryside, a touch of history, and a bit of exercise before heading off into the lovely Forest of Bowland, visit Clitheroe Castle, set on a towering motte above the town. Then you can feel justified in visiting Byrneís wine merchants, an Aladdinís cave of vinous wonders in the town. Donít be fooled by the unpromisingly small frontage, it extends into the hill in a series of cellar-rooms stocked with wines for the gentleman farmers and the footballers with taste who dwell in the Ribble Valley.
