Our readers share their photos of the one of the prettiest parts of the county

The Forest of Bowland has been a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for over 50 years and part of it was historically in West Riding of Yorkshire before the boundary changes of 1974.

 

The Forest of Bowland has a series of hills on its western side that form a horseshoe shape, the most famous of them being Clougha Pike, standing at over 400ft you can see as far as the Lake District from its summit on a good day.

 

Other notable landmarks that are always good for photography include Beacon Fell and the Trough of Bowland, that starts out near Dunsop Bridge (said to be the geographical centre of Britain).

 

Perhaps the most famous photography spot in the area are the stepping stones that cross the River Hodder near Whitewell, a popular detour for those visiting the award winning Inn at Whitewell or taking in one of the many walks across the Bowland area.

 

Why don’t you upload your photos of Bowland to the reader photo gallery?

 

All images uploaded to the website will be entered into the 2016 Lancashire Life reader photo competition and we pick the best ones to go into the magazine each month.
