Rawcliffe Hall Country Club & Caravan Park
Rawcliffe Country Club & Caravan Park is an historic mansion, dating originally from 1154 A.D., and is situated in a secluded and unrivalled position overlooking the picturesque River Wyre and is approached by a sweeping carriage drive through well matured grounds. The Hall has many connections with famous historical figures including Oliver Cromwell, who with his army were on the march from Preston to Lancaster, they came through Elswick and district and over the ford just outside the hall gates. Fortunately for this monastic house, he missed it because of the surrounding trees.
We can boast to having our very own ghost 'Miss Kitty' a local peasant girl who was so favoured by one of the squires that when she died he erected a bronze statue on the ground in front of the hall. However the statue disappeared during the Second World War. There are many old photographs and documents relating to the hall in the lounge bar and snooker room showing how this grand old house once looked, with not very much changed to date.
