The final destination on the Manchester to Clitheroe Line is the historic market town of Clitheroe in the beautiful Ribble Valley.

On leaving the station you turn right and walk along the path, which leads to a road under the railway. Turn right and walk under the bridge to join the road leading into the town on your right. Passing the Clitheroe Interchange building you arrive at the Platform Gallery which houses the Tourist Information Office and displays and exhibitions by local artists.

Clitheroe’s town centre is brimming with independent shops, cafes and bars, emporiums and the market, held on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Clitheroe Castle is set within attractive grounds and with an on-site museum and archaeology, and the castle hosts year round events, workshops and family activities. The castle is said to be one of the smallest Norman keeps in

England and one of the oldest buildings in the county.

The town hosts an annual food festival in early August showcasing the finest Ribble Valley

produce.

Clitheroe is the perfect base from which to explore the surrounding villages and the Forest of Bowland situated just over a mile from the town and offering a wealth of walking and cycling trails. For maps and further information visit www.ribblevalley.gov.uk or www.visitribblevalley.co.uk
