Beacon Fell

Beacon Fell Country Park is located in Goosnargh, north of Preston.

The park is owned and managed by Lancashire County Council. Indeed, it is great for enjoying wildlife, woodland walks, dog walking, horse riding.

The park consists of 271 acres of woodland, moorland and farmland. In fact, The Beacon Fell summit is 266 metres above sea level. In addition, it offers spectacular views of the Forest of Bowland and Morecambe Bay. On a clear day it is even possible to see the Isle of Man!

There is an abundance of wildlife for those who are prepared to be observant. Rabbits and hares are frequent and are easily spotted. Roe deer are a little more elusive, but patience may well be rewarded! Stoats and weasels can be seen running across the road or clambering over the dry stone walls. As many as 11 species of dragonflies and damselflies may be seen around the ponds during the summer months.
