the border between north east Lancashire and North Yorkshire is the
Forest of Bowland, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty only half an
hour's drive from the cities of Preston and Lancaster.
At the heart
of the Forest of Bowland is Slaidburn, an attractive village nestled
amongst the hills and yes, there are a few caves, Whitewell Cave and
Pot and nearby is one that lives up to it's name, Hell Hole.
Much of the Forest of Bowland is within the Duchy of
Lancaster Estate which includes Whitewell and it's Inn which is
considered one of the finest in the United Kingdom.
