A circular walk through Towneley Park near Burnley, Lancashire. Towneley Park surrounds the beautiful Towneley Hall. Home of the Towneley family for almost 500 years, the hall was sold to Burnley Corporation in 1901 when the male line of the family came to an end. Situated in 400 acres of beautiful parkland, Burnley Council has developed the building into an art gallery and museum, with fine period rooms decorated with oil paintings and sculptures. Towneley Hall has been called the Jewel in Burnley's Crown but that understates its significance - certainly it is one of Lancashire's most important buildings and by any measure should be high on the list of national treasures. The grounds are a great place to walk at any time of year. The parkland is open all year (normally until dusk) but the museum has seasonal opening so check before you travel if you are hoping to visit the exhibitions. The walk includes several gentle gradients and follows a mixture of parkland paths and avenues plus paths crossing grass pastures. You will need to negotiate gates, kissing gates, bridges and two stiles. Dogs are welcome on this walking route (it does not enter areas of the park where dogs are prohibited) but please follow local signage to ensure they are on leads in the areas required. You may come across livestock in a couple of the pastures. Allow 2 hours.
