About Oswaldtwistle

This is a large, typical Lancashire village lying close to the urban sprawl of Blackburn and Accrington. It has a diversity of housing, excellent shops, including the hugely attractive Oswaldtwistle Mills Shopping Centre where residents and visitors can find just about everything.

Sport is very much in focus here, for this is the home of Church and Oswaldtwistle Cricket Club. The club's history began in 1858 on land behind a pub called the Pickup Arms. It later moved to its present location in West End, Oswaldtwistle. Since then it has managed to acquire the ground from its owners - the Dunkenhalgh Estate, added to its buildings and facilities, making it one of the foremost grounds in the Lancashire Cricket League. The club has spawned both test and international players, has won the League Championship on five occasions and the Cup competition once. It has superb social facilities which are available for weddings, christenings, dinners and events.

Rhyddings Park is a lovely spacious green area, a pleasant place to stroll after a hard days shopping! Of its older buildings, Oswaltwistle parish church is interesting, it also has an old market cross, and attractive town hall and civic theatre.

Visitors will find plenty of places to relax, Oswaldtwistle Shopping Centre has restaurants and cafe's, there are pubs including the very pleasant Standhill. Golfing enthusiasts will find a challenging course at Cocker Brook, and closeby places to see include Darwen lakes, the Textiles Museum, Gawthorpe Hall, with the enchanting River Ribble on the other side of Blackburn being well worth seeing.

This large village makes an ideal base for exploring Blackburn, Burnley, Darwen and Cltheroe, it is also within easy reach of the fells, streams and rivers of the beautiful Bowland Forest.
