| Events in Gisburn | 10 Places to Stay

Gisburn is a Lancashire village with an interesting past, the Medieval church of St Mary The Virgin takes centre stage, and pretty stone cottages are peppered throughout. The River Ribble provides magical views for walkers who explore the Ribble Way, and woodland walks in Gisburn Forest. For a link with the past the Museum Of Yorkshire Dales Lead Mining is housed in an old 16th Century school, or maybe Pendle Heritage Centre will be first choice as it has thought provoking exhibits set in an ancient farmhouse showing what life was really like during the 17th Century, the trial of Lancashire witches, and, if that not enough there's a charming walled garden where the scents of herbs and flowers linger. For architecture of a different kind there is the magnificent Elizabethan Gawthorpe Hall with sumptuous rooms, costumes, and textiles from across the globe, or how about the Norman legacy of Clitheroe Castle. Artists will enjoy the ruins of Sawley Abbey, or there is always Whalley Abbey set on the River Calder. For the sights and sounds of steam, Queen Street Mill will please the most discerning of visitor, as this steam powered Weaving Mill offers an invitation to see 300 19th Century Looms rattle back to life.
