High upon the hill tops of Rishton, to the North of the town, sits Black Law Farm.

Black Law
Black Law Farm on the 11th March 2010.

Built in 1878 by Henry Petre of the Dunkenhalgh, the farm affords splendid views of the Yorkshire Dales to the North East, the Ribble Valley to the North, Blackpool and the Flyde Coast to the West, Darwen through to Haslingden and beyond to the South, and through the Burnley valley to the East over Great Harwood.

Date
Date stone for the farm.

Strangely, the date stone is not on the house itself, but on the side of the building.

Black Law farm, like many farms, sits off the road, down a track, used as footpath 14, which passes by the farm heading to Great Harwood.
