Add Hornby to your Itinerary

Hornby is a village in the Melling parish in Lancashire. It stands at the confluence of the Wenning and the Lune rivers, adjacent to the former Little Northwestern railway.
The village commands beautiful scenery along the valleys, is frequently visited by tourists and has cattle fairs on every alternate Tuesday of the summer months.

Hornby is famed for its spectacular private residence, a Grade 1 listed castle overlooking the village. The base of the castle's octagonal tower dates from the 12th or 13th century, but most of its structure dates from the 16th century. It has been much modified over the years, particularly in the 19th century. It is now an imposing private residence.
There is also an ancient castle site, Castle Stede, to the north of the village on the banks of the River Lune. Hornby is also home to St Margaret’s Church in including a tower built in 1514 for Sir Edward Stanley, the first Lord Monteagle.
