Things to see and do in Clitheroe
Clitheroe Castle is a historic early medieval fortress in the heart of town. A must-see in the area, you can learn more about the castle at the on-site museum. Heading out of the town centre, crossing the Brungerley Bridge takes you over the River Ribble and into the sweeping countryside this area is famous for.
Passing Waddow Hall, you can enjoy riverside walks and pick your way along one of the many brooks towards Easington Fell. A brilliant peak to hike up for both exercise and panoramic views, there’s much more to see beyond the fell as you reach the stunning Forest of Bowland. With Pendle Hill and a selection of scenic reservoirs to the east of town, Longridge Fell to the west and Manchester south, there are so many great ways to spend your time in the local area.
If you’re looking for a local primary school for your kids to attend, Clitheroe Pendle Primary is an excellent option. This is in Ofsted’s top bracket, while Edisford Primary and St James’ CofE are both classed as good. The same goes for Ribblesdale High School, while Clitheroe Royal Grammar School along York Street is rated outstanding.
