Our day trip – Oswaldtwistle

It was cold, frosty and sunny when we set off for Oswaldtwistle Mills.  Set in a converted Weaving Mill this is an award winning destination with lots of variety including clothes, garden centre, textile museum, cafes, ice cream parlour, fresh food etc.  We arrived to a room set out for us to have coffee/biscuits which was a nice start.  Then came the serious business of shopping, browsing, investigating and we are all good at that!    It was soon lunch time.  We had a really tasty Lancashire lunch followed by dessert and tea/coffee.  Then we re boarded our coach for a trip hosted by Simon Entwistle, complete in his top hat and frock coat, He gave us an interesting  guided tour of the area, Simon is an entertaining commentator who is also an expert on the Pendle Witches and Lancashire in general.   He told us stories about some of the entrepreneurs who had humble, poverty stricken starts in this area, who went on to make fortunes  and their names are still famous to-day.  He has appeared on TV many times and will be on Channel 5 next month.  A nice relaxing day with everything included in the trip price..
