Spend Some Time in South Ribble
Welcome to South Ribble, you’ll
find plenty to see and do. Why not visit Worden Park,
which offers you 150 acres of parkland to sit and relax, explore the gardens
and woodland or
have fun in the children’s playground and on
the miniature railway. The park has
Green Flag status and is only a short walk from the
centre of Leyland.
www.visitleyland.co.uk to find out more and for
details of events including the Leyland Festival.
When you fancy a break, escape to the countryside
right on the edge of town at Worden Park or
slightly further afield at Longton Brickcroft.
You can burn off some energy on the local cycle
paths, with a brisk walk through lovely countryside
and woodland or by taking on the long-distance
Ribble Way footpath. If you fancy a more
relaxing day out, just follow one of our shorter
“Walks for Health” routes on the handy leaflets,
join a guided walk to see our local history and
countryside or go fishing at Longton Brickcroft or
Just up the road, relax and spend time re-living the
past at Samlesbury Hall. Stroll round the
Great Hall where you can almost smell the feasts
that would have been served up in front of a huge,
roaring fire or work up an appetite yourself by
exploring the Tudor grounds and browsing round the
locally produced creative art and design and
antiques on display.
Leyland has a rich industrial heritage, much of it
based around the world famous Leyland buses and
trucks. Take yourself on a nostalgic journey at the
British Commercial Vehicle Museum in Leyland.
You can travel back to when the buses and trucks in
the unique vehicle collection were in daily use in
towns and villages across Britain and throughout the
world. Wander at your leisure round the new Leyland
Town Centre Heritage Walk where special
boards show you how the commercial vehicle industry
shaped Leyland and see carefully preserved items
from Leyland’s past at the South Ribble Museum.
Whether you're interested in nature, arts, crafts, history
or the outdoors South Ribble has something to offer.
