Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Beyond The Lune Valley, the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty covers 300 square miles of some of the most gorgeous parts of rural Lancashire and North Yorkshire. The unique countryside of the Forest of Bowland AONB is brilliant for walks, birdwatching and orienteering. The landscape is managed in a sustainable way to encourage responsible tourism.

Key landmarks include the impressive 900ft Jubilee Tower (on the road between Lancaster and Abbeystead), which offers fantastic views across Morecambe Bay, the Lancashire Plain and the Bowland hills, and the famous Pendle Hill, the former home of the Pendle Witches. Or for something a little bit different, why not visit the traditional Yorkshire market town of Bentham. With lovely scenery, it’s also a great starting point for many walks, cycle rides, pony treks and drives. For more info see www.forestofbowland.com .

There’s plenty of great countryside to explore while you’re in the Forest of Bowland AONB – all of which will be the perfect tonic for young and old alike. For detailed information on walking routes please see http://www.forestofbowland.com/walking_routes .
