Day trips Itinerary: Gisburn Forest and Stocks Reservoir

Itinerary: Gisburn Forest and Stocks Reservoir

In the hills above the picturesque village of Slaidburn there’s a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts just waiting to be explored.

This pristine upland landscape in Lancashire’s undiscovered rural hinterland is a hidden gem with more in common with the lochs and glens of the Scottish Highlands than the post-industrial mill towns in the south of the county.

Walking, trail-running, mountain-biking, fly-fishing and birding are all on the agenda for visitors with a taste for adventure. There’s even an easily accessible trail for outdoor enthusiasts with restricted mobility.
