Chorley Park is a hit with locals
Oct, 30 2021
As the clocks go back this weekend and the weather looks increasingly dire the thought of nice days out in local beauty spots seems like a distant dream.
However, as the months develop spring will soon be upon us and that gives us a chance to go for pleasant walks with friends and family.
Yarrow Valley Country Park located off Birkacre Road, has been praised by visitors. The green space covers more than 300 hectares and sits between Chorley and Coppull.
The park is enhanced by the following features:-
- Restored mill lodges
- Water courses
- Picnic areas
A five star reviewer expressed their appreciation for the park in this statement:-
“Lovely scenery, with a little café and a big park (play area) it was a really clean nice place! I would definitely go again”.
To see if you share their sentiments take a look at this 4 minute film to give you an insight of what to expect on your next visit:-
Yarrow Valley Country Park is of huge local historical importance. It was created on land previously used for bleaching, dyeing, calico printing and mining.
The park is ranked as number four on TripAdvisor for things to do in Chorley and number six on a list of Lancashire’s best hidden gem attractions.
