Trips & Adventures – 15 February 2018
We caught an early train at 10.03am to Clitheroe. For the train devotees there are hourly trains from Manchester Victoria operated by Northern. Usually, services are operated by Class 150 trains, but sometimes Class 156 and Class 153 operate the service.
We had a leisurely coffee and then a fantastic meal at the Conservative Club before heading towards Clitheroe castle, the town’s most notable building and one of the smallest Norman keeps in Britain dating back to 1186.
The views from the castle were very impressive, but it must have been the windiest day of the year – a good day to be playing with a frisbee – but not so good to keep on your feet.
