Gisburn

Gisburn (once Gisburne) is a small village in the Ribble Valley (close by to the Forest of Bowland), with a population of over 500.

Sat on the busy A59, the village lies at eastern edge of Lancashire, and was once in the West Riding of Yorkshire, before the boundary changes of 1974.

Historically, one of the Pendle witches – Jennet Preston was a resident of the village and was tried in the Pendle Witch Trials of 1612.  Nowadays Gisburn is a sleepy village with a nice pub and restaurant, and is ideally situated on the edge of the Forest of Bowland.
