Ribble Valley

When J.R.R Tolkien first set foot in Ribble Valley in the 1940's he uncovered a landscape of wide, rippling rivers, deep wooded conifer groves and misty green Lancashire countryside and he never looked back. Ribble Valley became his inspiration for 'Middle Earth', for the places he visited and their names often found their way into the famous Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Positioned in the ageless landscape of rural Lancashire, this area remains relatively unexplored, the majority of which forms part of the Forest of Bowland. This historic area is immersed in rich heritage, including the stunning Clitheroe Castle, the Roman sites at Ribchester and the famous Abbeys at Whalley and Sawley.

The two historic market towns of Clitheroe and Longridge are surrounded by 44 villages, the largest being Whalley, each set in serene and unspoilt countryside.
