Ribble Valley

Last weekend saw us up in the Ribble Valley in Lancashire. We stopped off at Clitheroe to look around the shops and the market. We also wandered up to the castle where there has been renovations. There is a museum and a cafe, a play area for the kids and the views are just beautiful. For a small town of around 14 to 15 thousand souls it really has a fair bit to offer the visitor.

My image here is of the First World War memorial with its lone soldier keeping vigil and serving as a constant reminder of Clitheroe’s sacrifice. In the distance is Pendle Hill, this is Witch Country!  See more about that . . .
