Welcome to Burnley

Green and Pleasant Land

Burnley’s rich industrial history has often overshadowed its impressive countryside. Look beyond the majestic mills to discover country houses, wild Pennine Moorland and an extensive forest network thriving with wildlife.

Gawthorpe Hall Stroll

Set on the banks of the River Calder, within extensive grounds,  Gawthorpe Hall near Padiham dates back to 1605 and is now home to the world renowned Rachel Kay-Shuttleworth textile collection. Enjoy a gentle three and a half mile circular walk through woodland including the Grove Lane Plantation where you will come across a series of wooden sculptures.

Queen Street Mill Ramble

Once a thriving weaving mill, Queen Street Mill Textile Museum takes you back in time to the Victorian era when steam ruled the world and is the world’s last surviving steam powered weaving mill.

With Queen Street as your starting point you can enjoy a three mile circular route taking you through woodland, over open fields and through farmland around the Burnley village of Harle Syke.

Canal Walk of Wonder

One of the ‘Seven Wonders of the British canal system’ -The Straight Mile is an impressive embankment that carries the Leeds - Liverpool canal 60 feet above Burnley. The high position allows
great views across the area and is a mini wildlife haven above the town. Start your walk at the Weavers Triangle Visitor Centre to learn about the role of the canal in the cotton industry.

Saunter to the Singing Ringing Tree

The Wayside Arts Trail
(3-8 miles) follows the Burnley Way footpath from Towneley Hall Museum and Art Gallery going through the Forest of Burnley woodlands to the Singing Ringing Tree sculpture at Crown Point. In the spring look out for white wild garlic and bluebell flowers near Boggart Bridge. Squirrels, roe deer and badger all live in and around the woods. The Towneley Sculpture Trail is a shorter alternative and is good one for younger visitors to explore.
