Wycoller Country Park

Wycoller Country Park is one of the prettiest country parks in Lancashire. The area is famous for its association with the Brontë sisters who referred to many of the nearby landmarks in books such as Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre.

The exclusion of cars from the village and the attractive appearance of the many preserved old buildings creates a unique feeling of tranquillity which is rarely experienced today.

Routes

Disabled toilet facilities are provided within the country park as well as an information centre at the Aisled Barn.
