Explore beyond the boundaries of historic Lancashire towns from Chorley to Bolton, Ramsbottom to Darwen and you’ll find a hidden gem, the West Pennine Moors. This 90-square-mile area of wild, unspoilt countryside is a rural haven and a perfect contrast to the nearby towns. The best way to discover this diverse patchwork of wildlife-rich moorland with its numerous reservoirs, historic villages and dense woodland is on foot. Numerous walking paths criss-cross the region and there are trails for every experience level. The Darwen Tower Walking Route is just two miles long but when you reach the summit you’re rewarded with spectacular views from Jubilee Tower, which was built at the end of the 1800s to celebrate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee. More experienced hikers might like the Anglezarke Trail, a 5.5 mile circular route through woods and fields around this picturesque reservoir. Or discover the Rivington Reservoir on a family bike ride around the Rivington Cycle Route, which passes Liverpool Castle, Rivington Hall Barn and Rivington Pike. Other popular activities on the West Pennine Moors include fishing, bird watching and UFO spotting!
