•   Elevated Rural Location

Situated in rural North West England, Tosside is a small rural community set in elevated and picturesque countryside on the Yorkshire/Lancashire border.

•   Picturesque Surroundings

Surrounded by the Yorkshire Dales to the East, the Forest of Bowland to the West, Ribble Valley / Pendle Hill to the South and the Lake District further afield to the North West, the village is situated in pleasant surroundings on the B6478 between the nearby small villages of Wigglesworth and Slaidburn.

•   Where Yorkshire meets Lancashire

Historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, following County boundary changes in the 1970’s, the village now literally straddles the county border; the eastern part of the village is in Yorkshire and the western part of the village is in Lancashire!

•   Local Community - 300 Residents

The Tosside community is spread over an area of some 36 square miles. Typically the area not covered by coniferous forest and open moorland comprises upland farms and rural family homes. At the last head-count the local community amounts to some 300 residents in total, including children.  

•   Modern Purpose-Built Community Hall

The community has an active social scene with a wide variety of events, designed to suit most tastes organised throughout the year; all events are based at the modern purpose-built Community Hall.

•   Gisburn Forest and Stocks Reservoir

Bordering on Lancashire’s largest coniferous forest just to the North of the village, Tosside is an ideal location from which to explore Gisburn Forest and nearby Stocks Reservoir, either on-foot, on horse-back or on one of the many off-road cycle trails.

Rural Crime

Rural crime has become a significant problem in the area. Thefts have involved livestock, Land Rovers (incl. doors / panels), tractors, trailers, quad bikes, ride-on mowers, machine tools, hand tools & diesel. Most thefts seem to occur during the early hours, particularly over the weekend. Report any  suspicious behaviour to Police on 101.
