The Forest of Bowland AONB exhibited in the Ribble Valley

Tuesday, 24th May 2016

An exhibition celebrating 50 years of the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty will be on display in Clitheroe this month.

Clitheroe Castle Museum will host the exhibition from Saturday 28 May until Sunday 17 July.

The display features items from the Bowland Scrapbook, a publication specially commissioned for the anniversary in 2014 showing rural life in Bowland over the last 50 years, and includes a range of authentic equipment from the museum's own farming collection.

Activities include a wildlife spotter game and visitors will have the chance to have a go at building a small imitation dry stone wall.

County Councillor Marcus Johnstone, Lancashire County Council cabinet member for environment, planning and cultural services, said: "The Forest of Bowland AONB is an area that we are very proud of in Lancashire.

"I'm delighted that this exhibition will celebrate its natural beauty and also encourage people who have already visited to explore the area again, or anyone who hasn't so far to visit it for the first time.

"I'm sure that families will enjoy taking part in the superb activities."

The Bowland Scrapbook will be available to purchase with money raised from this being donated to Champion Bowland, a social enterprise charity that supports environmental and tourism projects within the AONB.

The exhibition has been produced by The Forest of Bowland and Lancashire County Council's museums service.

The exhibition is free to visit but admission to the Castle Museum is £4.20 for adults and £3.10 for concessions. Young people aged 13 to 18 and accompanied children up to the age of 12 go free.
