The Forest of Bowland Discovery Guide 2017 is packed full of information about this area of outstanding natural beauty.
Whether you explore it on foot, by bike or by car, the Forest of Bowland greets visitors with a friendly smile, a warm welcome and a wealth of outsandingly beautiful scenery.
The guide has maps, with infomation on the area’s history, walks, wildlife, stargazing, places to eat, accommodation and what’s on in the area throughout the year as part of Festival Bowland 2017. There’s something for everyone with a year round calendar of events celebrating the birds, wildlife, landscape and culture of the Forest of Bowland AONB. You can do your bit for our feathered friends by making a willow bird feeder, join a summertime fungal foray in Gisburn Forest or experience a performance of a specially commissioned choral work, Songs of Bowland.
The Guide is free, but if you find it useful and would like to support the AONB, a small donation to Champion Bowland would help this small charity to enhance the outstanding landscape of the area. It does this by raising funds from visitor donations and charitable activity then awarding funds to local project that will enhance the environment for local communities and visitors.
