Beacon Fell Country Park is one of the country’s oldest. The 271 acres of woodland was acquired by the council in the late 60’s and opened up to the public in 1970.
Our route here is for guidance only. The best thing to do on Beacon Fell is to just walk where you chose. There is a ring road around the fell so you can always find your way back to the car park.
Refreshments and information are available at the Bowland Visitor Centre and cafe. More information on Beacon Fell here.
The distinct shape and proximity to the Irish Sea made Beacon Fell a perfect location for a beacon, which was installed to warn of the incoming Spanish Armada in the 16th century.
