Gisburn
Gisburn is a thriving village with a long history. Situated on the A59, between Clitheroe and Skipton, its wide main street still retains some of its cobblestones. The Ribblesdale Arms Hotel dated from 1635 has now been converted in to luxury flats. The parish church has Norman windows and a Norman arch. North and South windows still contain stained glass figures of the 14th century. Gisburn's main attraction is the large Auction mart, which is also the site of occasional Sunday markets. In addition a famous landmark is Gisburn Park, which is now a private hospital. Guy of Gisburn of Robin Hood fame was said to have come from here. The White Bull public house is so named because until 1857 Gisburn Park contained a herd of white hornless wild cattle, descendants of cattle which once roamed the area. This particular herd was said to have been brought to Gisburn after the dissolution of the Abbey at Whalley.
