Governance[edit] Loveclough
Loveclough
is considered part of the Rossendale
Rossendale
and Darwen constituency, after the constituency of Rossendale
Rossendale
was abolished in 1983. The constituency sends one Member of Parliament to the House of Commons. As of June 2009, both Lancashire
Lancashire
County Council and the local council, Rossendale
Rossendale
Borough Council, are controlled by the Conservative Party.[1][2] Geography and tourism[edit] The small hamlet is located on the edge of the Pennine hills in Northern England. Away from the cities and in the hills, some people would consider it a beauty spot of the north west of the country, and a quiet place to go around business without the stress of city life. Various wildlife can be seen in the area, and there are plenty of lakes and rivers, such as the Limy Water, a tributary of the River Irwell which it joins in Rawtenstall. Local people take advantage of this by performing activities such as fishing[3] and bird watching. Transport[edit] Loveclough
Loveclough
is served by a bus service, the X43 and X44 services, named 'The Witch Way'. The route was shortlisted for a UK Bus Award in October 2006.[4] Gallery[edit]
