Clitheroe Aug 17

The meet at Clitheroe Camping and Caravanning Club site was well attended with us filling the 10 pitches we had booked. The site is quite small and with the building of more hard-standing pitches for caravans and motorhomes there is not a lot of room left for small tents. The weather had been a bit damp recently so the pitches were also limited.

The campsite is in the glorious Ribble Valley, and there are some great walks along the paths. Maps can be brought (20p) in the site reception that can be added together for distances of 2 miles and upwards.

The bustling market town of Clitheroe is a little over a mile from the campsite where the castle dominates the skyline. Clitheroe is also developing as Lancashire’s food town. If sausages are you thing Cowman’s famous sausage shop has 75 different flavours.

Saturday weather was warm and dry but Sunday afternoon saw the rain arrive around 3pm and it stayed until Monday morning, packing up was a bit damp (the great British summer!). We managed to get the tent eventually dry at home on the Wednesday as that was the 1st dry day.
