An online resource created for the Bowland AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) could help bring the outdoors inside during lockdown.

Robin Gray, development and funding Officer for the AONB said:“ Living in such a beautiful part of the country is wonderful but, for those times when a trip to the great outdoors isn’t possible, why not enjoy nature indoors?"

He advises that the AONB’s At Home in Bowland online resource has numerous suggestions for discovering and enjoying the Forest of Bowland "from the comfort of your own sofa.”
