Full description

As below:

Foulridge is a small village and civil parish in Pendle, Lancashire, close to the border with North Yorkshire. It is situated just beyond Colne, on the route from the M65 to Skipton, and is an important stopping point on for boats and walkers on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal and Foulridge Tunnel. An old tale is of a cow falling into the canal at one end then passing through the tunnel before rescue. It is said it was taken to the nearby pub and revived with a drink! There is also a large reservoir that feeds the canal and boating takes place on here. Barge trips are also available on the canal. There is a regular bus service providing links to nearby towns including Skipton and Burnley. Foulridge boasts local shops, a Chippy,Public House and delightful walks in the country. Manchester can be reached in less than an hour by car, and trains run from nearby Colne which can be reached on foot in around 15 minutes.
