Newton-le-WillowsNewton Le Willows lies in the county of Lancashire which takes its name from the city of Lancaster and is sometimes known as the County of Lancaster. To the west of the county are miles of sandy coastline with some of Britain's most popular seaside resorts, while to the east you will find open countryside, rugged fells and moorland. Lancashire is home to the Forest of Bowland, the picturesque Ribble and Lune Valleys, nature reserves and several country parks. The towns of Burnley, Blackburn and Chorley offer visitor attractions that reflect their once important role as the cotton-weaving centre of Britain.
