Lancashire

Click the map for tourism ideas Lancashire comprises a lowland area in the west, along the Irish Sea, and an interior upland area. It is primarily an agricultural county centred on dairy farming, livestock raising, and the growing of vegetables. From the 17th century, the region developed as a textile-manufacturing centre and the industry is still important today. Although Lancashire has a variety of large towns and cities such as Liverpool and Manchester, the Ribble Valley and the Lancashire dales are a haven of peace and tranquillity. In the Forest of Boland, you may hear tales of the 17th-century witches of Pendle.

The Black Bull is more or less the nearest 'local' for Fat Badger Roy Taylor although he rarely walks it any more as it's all uphill and his little legs are getting on a bit now. The food is great including the chunkiest chips you could ever wish for and the ales well kept. If you're a dog lover sit yourself down in the bar and you'll get lots of attention from the local dogs as they pop in for a pint on their way home.
