The Personal Touch

In the heart of the affluent Ribble Valley of Lancashire, Clitheroe is a bustling market town with a population of 14,000 and is the main service hub for the residents of the picturesque Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The town is built around its most prominent feature, the 12th Century Norman Castle Keep, set high up on an outcrop of limestone rock and surrounded by 18 acres of beautifully kept public grounds.

Nestling at the foot of the castle rock is Fern Court Business Centre – ten contemporary workspace units, in the centre of Clitheroe, providing a modern and light environment. The Business Centre boasts kitchen areas, state-of-the-art technology, meeting room and reception. The original beautiful stone façade of an 1800s building with a rich history remains.
