Welcome to Community Rail Lancashire
Lancashire is a county of contrasts. Explore the delightful coastal areas of the Fylde and Morecambe Bay with dramatic views across to the Lakes; the historic towns and cities such as Lancaster and Ormskirk and discover the quiet countryside of the Ribble Valley and Pendleside dominated by Pendle Hill.
Exploring Lancashire by rail can be fun and educational as well!! Did you know that Clitheroe has what may be the smallest castle keep in the country or that Colne host’s one of the largest Rhythm and Blues Festivals in the world? There is so much to see, enjoy and learn and it can all be reached using Lancashire’s community rail network.
The 7 Lines of Lancashire
Lancashire has five community rail partnerships (CRPs) that cover a total of seven lines or routes and these are one of the biggest groups of CRPs in the country.
