West Pennine Moors
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.
