The Lidgett and Beyond Group
The Lidgett and Bents area is just outside Eastern Colne. It is a beautiful, largely unspoilt slice of Lancashire’s upland countryside. A large swathe of the area is both Green Belt and a Conservation Area. A magnet to walkers and hikers, it is also dotted with listed buildings dating back to the seventeenth century.
Members of the Lidgett & Beyond Group aim to preserve and enhance the wildlife and character of this special place. Radical changes to planning policy mean that the area is be under threat, depriving Colners and visitors of real countryside right next to the town and replacing it with faceless, depressing suburban sprawl.
Lidgett & Beyond is fortunate to have support from local politicians of all parties and is politically independent.
