Crown Point, Burnley - HAWTHORN NOV-MARCH 2019-2020 PLANTING SEASON
Crown Point Road, Burnley
This incredibly attractive area was launched June 2003, by the Mayor and Mayoress of Burnley. This site has been specially selected for its high landscape beauty and general natural appeal.
Almost as soon as you arrive at the gate to the planting site, the uninterrupted view over Burnley Town to the Pendle Hills is splendid. All plantings at this site will be on the left hand side of the pathway which zigzags down to the lower gentle slopes to join the “Ramblers Way”. From the pathway you can also access the ‘Singing Ringing Tree Panopticon’, which on a windy day the monument chimes. This is a popular destination for walkers and ramblers.
Burnley has an enviable reputation for its military history over many centuries therefore the Crown Point area will be of particular interest to all ex-services personnel. As in all of the Life for a Life planting areas a special corner referred to as “Warriors Rest” is set aside. Present on the day of the official opening of the site members of The Queens Lancashire Regiment planted a Memorial Tree on behalf of all of the past and present members of the regiment and the uniformed branches of the emergency services.
