Situated in the remote Forest of Trawden, Wycollar remains one of Lancashire's most popular tourist destinations. Much of the village stood derelict for many years, with rumours that the valley was to be flooded as part of a reservoir scheme. This view shows the ancient 'clapper' bridge, made of huge gritstone slabs and probably of medieval date. Beyond is the two-arched packhorse bridge, dating to the 17th century.
