About Slaidburn

This picturesque village was for centuries the administrative centre for the beautiful Forest of Bowland. It also boasted the only grammar school for miles around. Slaidburn is unique in as much as the village remained in the ownership of the same family for over two hundred years. Since the early 19th-century, the village, hidden away by the Bowland fells, has remained a harmonious, tranquil place, seemingly untouched by the march of time.

Due to the reticence of local landowners the area is only just beginning to open up as a destination for walkers but now, Slaidburn has it's own Heritage Centre and is welcoming visitors from all over. It is an eye catching place with a pretty village green and a scattering of stone cottages set in an idyllic spot on the banks of the River Hodder.

An interesting tale surrounds the village pub which has the unique name of The Hark to Bounty, Bounty was supposedly a foxhound belonging to the local vicar, and whenever he met his pals in the inn following a day riding out with the hounds, Bounty's barking could be heard above the chorus of the whole pack. Thus, the name of the inn was changed. Fact or fiction, it is a delightful tale entirely in keeping with this lovely village. An 18th-century church can be seen and the school.
