Barnoldswick Beach attracts record number of visitors
8:00am Friday 30th August 2013 in News
The sands of time run out for Barnoldswick beach-goers this weekend as the popular attraction closes with a massive beach party on Saturday.
The fourth annual Barnoldswick Beach is heading for a record number of visitors, with more than 10,000 visits so far this year to the town square.
“For our final day, we’ve got extra donkeys and an all day beach party,” said beach organiser Lindsay Gaskell. “We’ve had fantastic support from visitors both new and old with people coming from a wide circle and even abroad to try out our seasonal sands.
“There’s still time to sample the sand on the square and see why people think this is the best urban beach in Britain.”
Barnoldswick Beach is open daily from 10am to 4pm until Saturday.
