Clitheroe Castle, Lancashire added to Historic Buildings in North West by D0c.Col on 11/12/2022

This ancient landmark overlooks the town of Clitheroe sitting prominently on top of a limestone mound and has dominated the town's skyline for over 800 years.

Castle and grounds are open daily and free to visit. You can see some of the stunning panoramic views of Ribble Valley’s beautiful landscape and the climb up to the top would be well worth it!

Clitheroe Castle Museum is managed by Lancashire County Council's museum service, on behalf of Ribble Valley Borough Council.

The award-winning Museum is located in the former Steward's House, a Grade II listed building that was built in the 18th century to house the Steward of Clitheroe Castle and includes the ubiquitous Visitors Gift Shop.

Visitors to the museum will be transported through 350 million years of local history. The journey starts with the formation of the landscape we see today and why the Ribble Valley is a haven for unique wildlife. Moving through the galleries the captivating story of the Castle and surrounding area continues to unfold. From local industry and heroes to folklore and legends the exhibits, touchscreen animations and sound points make it a shared experience for everyone to enjoy.

The castle is accessible with areas suitable for all, including those of limited mobility. More info, including a link to their access statement, is available from the following website:

Sherbrook Banks, Cannock Chase (By Steviegeek)

Part of Cannock Chase, Staffordshire, this site over looks Sherbrook Valley.
Martin @gunja99 and I flew here on a Friday afternoon, convenient park bench to sit on and met a few dog walkers, all very amicable and friendly. Also encountered a group of horse riders we spoke to them to establish their route and flew to avoid them, no problems, no upset horses.

Parked in Dry Pits Car Park which is really just a layby, space for about eight cars.
Walked a 100 yards east, and set up by the parkbench. The path is an excellent runway for landing planes and wings.

We suspect this site may be busy at the weekends
