Home / Community Based Information / Friends Of Radcliffe Manor
Our aim is to promote and develop the wider community's interest, knowledge and pride of this historic core of Radcliffe, with its Medieval Manor represented by the surviving buildings of the Church and Tower plus its surrounding heritage. A Heritage Trail is marked by information boards around the area, this starts at the "Hut" in Close Park, next to the car park. The trail is wheelchair and buggy friendly. Guided Walk 'n' Talks will take place during the year - see local press for details.
