The Forest of Bowland
At the very centre of the UK lies the beautiful Forest of Bowland AONB. With 300 square miles of rolling hills, sometimes you can walk for miles without seeing a single person.
According to the Ordnance Survey, Dunsop Bridge in the Forest of Bowland is the official centre of the British Isles. Explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes unveiled a phone box with a plaque announcing the village's claim to fame in 1992. The 100,000th phone box to be installed in the UK, villagers successfully fought off a plan by BT to remove this famous landmark in 2008.
