Lancashire's best kept secret is the Forest of Bowland AONB, a land of quaint historic stone built villages, wild moorland, gritstone outcrops and broad river valleys. Bowland covers an area of 312 square miles and is bounded by the River Lune to the north, The Ribble Valley to the south and east and the M6 motorway to the west.

At 1,841 ft high remote Ward's Stone is its highest point and with over 170 named fell tops including 13 over 1,500 ft the area is fine walking country. The area is also rich in wildlife and historical interest.
