There are 3 Local Nature Reserves (LNR’s) in Hyndburn, 2 of these being the biggest in the whole of Lancashire! These include Peel Park & the Coppice LNR and Woodnook Vale LNR in Accrington. Church (town) is also the mid-point of the Leeds to Liverpool Canal. There are many more areas to explore including Foxhill Bank LNR, Clayton Forest Park, Jack House and Spout House woodlands.
There are 22 allotment sites located throughout Hyndburn with an approximate total of 850 plots.
The sizes of the allotments vary to accommodate the differing requirements of our tenants. You may be allowed livestock, for example, chickens and rabbits, and some are available with sheds/tool stores in situ.
There are a number of ways to get more involved in your local park, this could include joining one of the many ‘Friends of the park’ groups or, if you have some spare time and wish to develop your skills, there maybe the opportunity to work along side an experienced park keeper.
A number of very successful community events have taken place in Hyndburn’s Parks and Open Spaces in recent times. A resource has been put together to help facilitate the organising of a community event on Council land.
