It’s a tough job to select Lancashire's best villages to visit, but Lancashire Life have given it a go. See if you agree with their choices.
Where it is: The village stands in countryside a couple of miles north east of Clitheroe, close to the A59. The nearest railway station is at Clitheroe and if you’re following a satnav, type in the postcode BB7 4DN.
Famous for: The lack of signs, television aerials and other indicators of modern life. Even if you don’t know the village itself, you’re likely to know it from its many appearances on television – because Downham remains largely untouched by the 20th century (let alone the 21st) it is often used as a location for filming period dramas.
