Sunnyhurst Wood Visitor Centre

Due to the coronavirus, many museums and galleries across the country are closed. Please check their websites and social media channels for up to date information about reopening dates and times.

Paths meander up the steeped sided valley beside Sunnyhurst Brook, past the paddling pool, over ornate bridges up to Earnsdale reservoir, onto Darwen moor, Jubilee tower and beyond. With seven miles of footpaths in a glorious natural setting, this beautiful woodland covers 85 acres, and is a beautiful location for family walks and picnics.. The Olds Keeper's Cottage now serves as a visitor centre and art gallery, where visitors can enjoy refreshments whilst picking up information on the history of this area of outstanding beauty.
