Around Us

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 narrowboats ply their way along this pleasant stretch of the canal. 


Order a picnic or have a take out and enjoy lunch by the locks. Just in need of a coffee, we can provide this for you also. If you would like to come inside and enjoy the tearoom you will be warmly welcomed by all our team.

Have a browse through our gallery to see the beautiful surroundings you can enjoy.

We look forward to seeing you soon…
