About the area/map
Towneley Park near the centre of Burnley is large and varied, with Towneley House and visitor centre as the centrepiece. The area is crossed by formal paths in the open areas and informal paths through rough scrub, rhododendrons and semi-mature plantations that surround the playing fields and two golf courses. There are a lot of water features, streams, ditches, ponds, marshes and the main river. Don't be surprised if you encounter a deep ravine, a tunnel, a memorial or a route choice through a building. Winning times are usually fast.
