Wycoller Country Park
Enjoy a lovely walk through the beauitful Wycoller Country Park in Pendle. The park has a number of footpaths taking you along Wycoller Beck to Bank House and the remains of Wycoller Hall. There are great views of the Pendle Hill and a stroll through the delightful Wycoller Village to enjoy. No cars are allowed in the village and many of the old buildings remain preserved, making it a particularly peaceful and special place. The area has strong links with the Bronte sisters who referred to many of the nearby landmarks in books such as 'Wuthering Heights' and 'Jane Eyre'. The park is located just a couple of miles east of Colne.
If you wish to continue your walk both the Pendle Way and Bronte Way walking routes run through the park.

Further Information and Other Local Ideas
The climb to Boulsworth Hill starts from Wycoller. The hill is located a few miles south of the park and includes the summit of Lad Law, which stands at 1,696 ft (517 m). It's a great viewpoint and well worth the climb.
To the west of the park there are some nice waterside trails around the two Foulridge Reservoirs.
