On the edge of the historic town of Great Harwood, everything you need for convenient daily life is well taken care of. There’s a large Tesco Superstore, Morrisons and Aldi close to home. Plus, the town has a great choice of independent stores and lots of places to grab a coffee and a bite to eat. The town has a weekly market and a very popular farmers market, held on the first Sunday of every month. Many local producers have stalls here and the produce on offer includes everything from organic meats, traditional pies, fish and shell fish, locally brewed beers, even luxury body care, arts and crafts and jewellery stalls.
But there’s so much more to the town than handy shopping. Take a walk around the town and you’ll discover the many historical buildings linking the town to its rich cotton industry heritage. The Bank building and famous Clock Tower are some of the finest examples of Edwardian architecture in the county.
With Blackburn, Preston, Burnley, even Manchester so easy to get to, you’re never far from all the attractions and entertainment. Whether you fancy a day or a night out, you’ll love having these close by.
If you enjoy being active, walking the dog or just want to let the kids burn off some energy, nearby Memorial Park is a great place visit. And it’s just down the road. Or the scenic meandering River Calder and some of Lancashire’s finest countryside are within easy reach, just north of Lyndon Park.
A great location for families, there’s a good choice of schools nearby. Five primary schools serve the Great Harwood catchment. The nearest of these are Our Lady & St Hubert’s RC Primary and Great Harwood St Bartholomew’s C of E Primary School. For older children, there’s St Augustine’s Roman Catholic High School in nearby Billington.
