Tenure: Freehold

Colne occupies a strategic location close to the southern entrance of the Aire Gap, which offers the lowest crossing of the Pennine watershed. The M65 terminates just west of the town and from here two main roads take traffic onwards towards the Yorkshire towns of Skipton (A56, 11 miles) and Keighley (A6068). Colne railway station represents the current terminus of the East Lancashire railway line, which until 1970 extended northwards towards Skipton. Colne is surrounded by beautiful villages and open countryside, which have helped to fuel a recent growth in tourism. The hamlet of Wycoller with its historic pack horse bridge and clam bridge, said to date back to the Iron Age, lies to the south-east in Brontë Country. The ruin of Wycoller Hall is thought to be the inspiration for Ferndean Manor in Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre.
