If you are looking at this website from abroad or another transition group in the UK, you may be wondering, where is Clitheroe and what is it like?
Clitheroe lies at the heart of the green Ribble Valley, in between the magnificent Pendle Hill (the inspiration behind the shape of our logo) and it’s smaller sister, Longridge fell. It’s recorded history dates back to the Norman times, and a well known feature of the town is that is posesses the smallest Norman Keep in the country, perched on top of a naturally occurring limestone mound in the middle of the town. Pendle Hill is a pilgrimage site for Quakers as it is upon this hill that Fox had his vision which resulted in the founding of the movement.It is also famous for its witches!
