Croston

Take in Croston’s picture postcard cottages, historic homes, a church that dates back to William the Conqueror and a cobbled packhorse bridge, erected in the 15th century, which crosses the River Yarrow.

The name of this village means 'Town of the Cross'. This name was given to commemorate a 7th Century Wayside cross which was used by the Celtic missionaries who brought Christianity to the North of England. The original cross is no longer there and it is thought to have gone in Cromwell's time. A new cross was placed in the village in 1950.

Don't miss Church Street itself, which has rightly been described as one of the best preserved rows of 17th century cottages in Lancashire.

Also well worth exploring is Drinkhouses Lane, which has three-storey handloom weavers' cottages dating mainly to the 18th century and a reminder of Croston's industrial heritage.

As if all this rich history was not enough, Croston scooped Silver-Gilt in the Large Village category at the Britain in Bloom finals awards ceremony in 2015.

Croston has much to offer those who love good food and drink, plus some excellent shops.
