Lumb Spout Waterfall
OS grid reference :-SD921373
Lumb Spout waterfall is located around 2 miles (3km) from Colne and although close to industrial towns, is in a peaceful and attractive location.
'Lumb' in the Lancashire dialect means pool. Trawden Brook cascades vertically in a slender spout for around eight metres into a pool in an attractive wooded hollow.
Lumb Spout was a favorite tourist spot in Victorian times and the valley contains what remains of a ancient Oak and Ash woodland and its large variety of fauna.
At the roundabout on the A60868 on the east side of Colne follow signs for Trawden along the B6250, continue through Trawden Park and park near the mill.
Continue along the road opposite the mill, passing houses, until sighting a stile in a wall on the left with a footpath signpost. Cross the stile and continue diagonally across a field, cross the wooden footbridge over a stream and continue to the falls.
