Clitheroe Castle is argued to be the smallest Norman keep in the whole of England. It stands atop a 35-metre outcrop of limestone and is one of the oldest buildings in Lancashire. It is also the only remaining castle in the county which had a royalist garrison during the English Civil War.
With its many shops, markets and eateries its clear to see why Clitheroe is the jewel in the Ribble Valley crown if not Lancashires.
Well worth a visit is Holmes Mill, Beer hall, Comedy Club, Food Hall, Gym and Event space.
SEE: Walk to the top the castle and see the great views then wandr down the other side into the gardens.
DO: Check out the independent shops.
EAT: Visit Holmes Mill and all it has to offer.
