Clitheroe Castle

Clitheroe Castle

Clitheroe Castle & Museum, Clitheroe, Lancashire

Standing on a rocky outcrop of limestone about 35 metres above the valley floor of the River Ribble, the keep of Clitheroe Castle is a prominent landmark both in the town and in the surrounding area. It has several claims to fame: it is one of the oldest buildings in Lancashire; it may be the smallest keep in England; and it is the only remaining castle in Lancashire which had a royalist garrison during the Civil War.

Admission Free

Clitheroe Castle Museum

The Museum reflects both the local history and geology in its displays with special events and displays staged throughout the year.

There is a reconstructed lead mine, clogger's shop and an Edwardian kitchen, all with sound (and a hearing loop).

The Clitheroe Castle Museum can be found next to the Castle Keep in the Castle Grounds via entrance at Castlegate, Clitheroe
