New homes in Clitheroe

Welcome to Clitheroe

Located in Lancashire’s Ribble Valley, Clitheroe is an ancient market town known for its Norman castle and close proximity to the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. If you’re looking to live in a charming rural town with good transport links to neighbouring towns and cities, a new home in Clitheroe could be perfectly suited for you and your family.

A quick history

Clitheroe dates back to Anglo-Saxon times, and over the centuries the town has had many different landowners. In Norman times a keep - thought to be the smallest of its kind in England - was built standing above the town, which can still be seen today. During the English Civil War, the castle had a Royalist garrison and today you can still see a large hole in the side of the keep deliberately made by the government to make the castle undesirable.

During the Second World War, Clitheroe hosted engineers from Rolls-Royce and Rover who were working to develop the jet engine. The award-winning Clitheroe Interchange, which is home to both a bus and train station, was built in 2000.

Business and industry

At one time, Clitheroe was home of an ICI chemical plant but it was sold in 2002 to Johnson Matthey who continue to operate in the town. Clitheroe is also home to a number of other large manufacturing firms including Janson Cement, Tarmac and Dugdale Nutrition, while employers in Preston and Blackburn - including BAE Systems and Eka Chemicals - are within commuting distance.  

Things to do in the area

If you enjoy discovering times gone by, Clitheroe Castle is a great place to visit where you can tour the museum and explore the landscaped gardens which also have a playground, rose garden and a Labyrinth.

For an adventure in the great outdoors, the Forest of Bowland is nearby, while you can also take a walk around the grounds of Stonyhurst College or go on a circular walk through the town. If you like playing golf, you can enjoy a round at Clitheroe Golf Club’s 18 hole course.

Other local attractions include Browsholme Hall and Longitude Art Gallery, while the town also hosts Clitheroe Food Festival and Clitheroe Spring Festival each year. As for shopping, there are lots of independent stores in the town centre including Byrnes Wine Shop and Cowman’s Famous Sausage Shop.

Travel and commuting

Located on the edge of the Forest of Bowland, Clitheroe enjoys a rural location but good transport connections by road and rail, especially since the award-winning Clitheroe Interchange was built at the turn of the millennium. Blackburn can be reached in 25 minutes by car or train, while Preston can be reached in 35 minutes. Manchester is one hour away by car or the train journey is slightly longer at one hour 15 minutes.

If you’re travelling further afield, the journey to London takes four hours 30 minutes by car or an hour less travelling by train with two changes at Blackburn and Preston. For international travel, Leeds Bradford Airport is the nearest airport to Clitheroe, around one hour away.
