Our Surroundings


Relax & Enjoy...


Lower and Higher Wheelton, can be found on the main road from Chorley to Blackburn.
Lower Wheelton, where our Tearoom is located in front of the beautiful Clock Tower, has tiny sloping streets, giving an accurate impression of the surrounding hilly countryside, with Briers Brow being the steepest.

Part of the village borders the Leeds Liverpool Canal. The Top Lock is nearby and the locks themselves are a fascinating reminder of the canal linkage once vital to trans-Pennine industrial canal traffic in their difficult descent from the higher reaches of the Leeds to Liverpool Canal to the lower regions of West Lancashire.

Our surroundings are a hive of activity during the summer months as the tourists narrow boats ply their way along this pleasant stretch of the canal.
