A Walk in May
A Walk in May
Type: Walking
Submitted by:David Whipp
Item Location: Letcliffe Park, Manchester Road, Barnoldswick BB18 5HE

Description:

Here are some pictures from a short walk from Letcliffe Park on a sunny May Sunday.

We left Letcliffe by the stone style in the eastern boundary wall of the park and crossed to the end of Hodge Lane. The main picture shows the single tree atop the hill looking east.

Above Eastcliffe, we passed the ruined cottage and viewed the Barnoldswick vista before contouring along the hillside and crossed the lane which leads to Moor Side.

Following the wall side path, our walk took us through a buttercup filled meadow, then pasture with grazing sheep and their lambs.more

A Walk in September Sunshine
A Walk in September Sunshine
Type: Countryside
Submitted by:David Whipp
Item Location: Greenberfield, Barnoldswick BB18 5SU

Description:

Greenberfield Locks are nice and handy to go for a short walk.

The Lock Stop cabin is a good spot for refreshments at the beginning and end of a walk.

Beyond the locks, quiet countryside takes control of the towpath.

Dairy cows, sheep and horses graze and birds skim the water taking their fill of insects.

A good circuit takes you northwards along the towpath. Past bridge 158 and round the bend, a style on your right skirts you around the Rolls-Royce Ghyll Brow plant over the fields. (This can be a muddy trod especially at the gate holes.more

Barnoldswick Beach
Barnoldswick Beach
Type: Play area
Submitted by:David Whipp
Item Location: Barnoldswick Beach, Town Square, Barnoldswick BB18 5AA

Description:

Although Barnoldswick couldn't be any further from the sea, in August the tides bring tons of sand right into the heart of the town and Barnoldswick's square is transformed into Britain's best inland beach.

The summer holiday attraction, with a covered beach area and beach activities, has had tens of thousands of visits from families from far and wide. For many, visiting Barnoldswick Beach is the first of many visits to the town.

The Beach is organised by Barnoldswick Town Council and staffed entirely by volunteers. As well as the sand itself, there are Donkey Days with donkeys giving rides to the little ones, and there's a surf simulator for beach goers young and old.more
