The characterful charming village of Barrowford in Pendle, sits on the confluence of two rivers, Pendle Water and Colne Water, where trout can often be seen leaping through the clear waters. It’s an upmarket place full of attractive 17th and 18th century farmhouses and pretty handloom weavers’ cottages. The independent boutiques than line the high street are jammed with smart designer fashion, attracting some of the North West’s most affluent customers including footballers and their other halves. David Beckham has even been known to drop in for some shopping in Barrowford! The village also happens to be on the Leeds to Liverpool Canal, which at 127 miles is the longest canal in Northern England. The canal has 91 locks seven of which are in Barrowford! The oldest bridge in town, the Packhorse Bridge near Higherford Mill, dates back to the end of the 16th century. Pendle Heritage Centre is home to the two oldest buildings in Barrowford, the Fold and Park Hill, which date back to 1550. The buildings have been extensively altered over the last 200 years as you’ll see at the exhibition inside. Barrowford is surrounded by beautiful countryside that is perfect for walking or cycling so makes it perfect for the Pendle Cyciling Festival.
