Whitewell
Known locally as 'Little Switzerland', where the river Hodder winds its way along the wooded valley. A church, an Inn and a few cottages grace this very attractive spot. Cave dwellers lived here around 1000 BC and Middle Bronze Age relics were found in the 'Fairy Holes' cave a few years ago. Roman remains have also been found in the area and a long straight roman road over the valley is still partly in use. The manor, now known as the "The Inn at Whitewell", used to be the location for a thriving market, which was held on the forecourt. The Inn, situated on the banks of the River Hodder, has the rights to six miles of the river's best fishing.
