On Your Doorstep
Here in Hyndburn, nestling in the foothills of the western edge of the Pennines, we’re lucky to have right here on our doorstep lots of stunning countryside, moorland hills, woodlands, meadows, parks and open spaces, many among the best in the UK.
The spectacular green spaces of Peel Park & the Coppice and Woodnook Vale in Accrington were recently recognised as the two largest Local Nature Reserves in Lancashire. And on a smaller scale, we also have the scenic Foxhill Bank and Jack House Nature Reserves in Oswaldtwistle, Spout House woodlands in Huncoat, the Woodlands and extensive Clayton Forest Park in Clayton –le Moors, and the picturesque Norden Valley between Great Harwood and Rishton. We also have eleven lovely parks dotted around the Borough, eight of which boast a green flag, the national standard showing that they are well managed and maintained, welcoming, safe for users and have good links with the local community.
