A free activity for the family, and a good gasp of fresh air. The singing ringing tree whistles when the wind blows through the pipes. The kids enjoy running around the tree, playing games. The view of Burnley is also outstanding. Most enjoyable.

Beautiful place, can get a bit crowded but if you go on a week day you'll have the whole place to yourself.

Way above Burnley the view is worth the visit alone. Follow footpath to singing ringing tree. Don't forget camera. Strange and eerie sounds but it's fascinating to listen to.
