Beacon Fell Country Park with sculpture trial
Starting at the 'Orme Sight' adjacent to the Bowland Visitor Centre & Café, the shaded forested paths, and conifer woods to the summit of Beacon Fell envelope you with greenery during summer and autumnal browns and golds later in the year. Along the trail you will also come across a snake, a bat and a 50ft heron. All the sculptures were carved from local materials by local artist Thompson Dagnall.
