Downham Churchyard

Downham is a small village on the road leading up to Newchurch – in – Pendle.

We visited this village and the church in the mists of Autumn time. The village itself was originally thought to have settlers as early as the 8th century.

The main part of the church is thought to have been built in the 15th century, with major restorations taking place between 1909 – 1910.

Some of the productions that have been filmed in Downham include Born and Bred and Whistle Down the Wind.

Blessed Be )O(
