Gawthorpe Circular Walk - 4 miles

Discover Padiham and the surrounding countryside on this 4 mile circular walk. The walk includes natural woodlands and views of the Elizabethan gem Gawthorpe Hall.

Gawthorpe Hall has many links to the Brontes who visited their neighbour Sir James Kay-Shuttleworth on many occasions during the 1850's. It was whilst staying at Gawthorpe Hall that Charlottes pseudonym ‘Currer Bell’ was blown. Sir James showed her the sights of his district including the ruins of Whalley Abbey near Clitheroe. Follow the Gawthorpe 4 mile circular walk and you’re likely to be following in Charlotte’s footsteps. The walk includes the nearby town of Padiham and the grounds and woodland of Gawthorpe Hall.
