Lancashire Life - - PLACES TO VISIT -

It often surprises vis­i­tors that Bow­land isn’t more fa­mous and, while many lo­cals pre­fer it that way, tourism is grow­ing all the time.

Bow­land is for wildflower mead­ows and con­ser­va­tion, dark sky sta­tus for star-gaz­ing and wildlife walks, all of which can be found on the AONB’S web­site. Cloudspot­ting, is a mu­sic fes­ti­val tak­ing place from June 21-23 in Gis­burn For­est and from Septem­ber 21 to 29 there is The Foodie Foray, a cel­e­bra­tion of Bow­land’s fan­tas­tic sea­sonal, lo­cal pro­duce. It’s a week of walks, for­ag­ing and feast­ing led by lo­cal experts to learn about the ed­i­bles in our hedgerows, fields and wood­lands on a se­ries of for­ag­ing and herbal medicine walks. www.forestof­bow­land.com
