Belthorn, Lancashire - The website for Belthorn village
Welcome to the village...
This is the website for Belthorn village in Lancashire. It is a space for villagers past and present to share information about the latest news and what's happening in our community.

Belthorn Village Pond Project
You may have noticed the recent work carried out to the front of the village pond.  The shoreline has been raised and filled with chippings to prevent water seepage onto the cobbled area adjoining the pavement.  Luckily the ducks seem happy with the improvements.

This work was organised by the village committee and grant funded by the Windfall fund administered by the Prospects Foundation.  Match funding was also grateful received from Lancashire County Council's Green Partnership Awards. 

Summer 2014

Well, summer is here with its lighter mornings and nights, gardens (and weeds) blooming with the very much welcomed sunshine which should encourage us to move out into the great outdoors and get some fresh air and exercise.   Why not take to the many paths and explore the beautiful countryside around the village. maybe ending the walk by partaking of a little light refreshment or a bite to eat in the Dog Inn or The Pack.  Or if you're thinking of a night out or just don't feel like cooking tonight why not leave the car at home and just stroll along to the Dog Inn, take advantage of their latest offers and support Nick and his team who are planning lots of exciting events this year?   We need our village pub - use it or lose it....!
