Ribble Valley Food Trail
At 300 square miles, most of which is in the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Ribble Valley has two market towns, Clitheroe and Longridge, and 44 villages set in a peaceful and unspoilt landscape offering panoramic views and a rich heritage. It is also home to some of the North West's best food and drink, most dedicated and hardworking producers, and inspirational chefs.
Hailed by the Times Online as one of the country's top food trails, the award-winning Ribble Valley Food Trail is proud to showcase some of the finest food producers, retailers and restaurateurs for miles around.
An array of wonderful foods - meat from traditional Lancashire breeds, organic milk and cheese, yogurt and ice-cream, handmade pies and pastries, and a feast of fruit and vegetables packed with natural flavour - can be found at shops and restaurants along the borough's leafy lanes and in its historic towns and villages.
