Wycoller is a village in the Borough of Pendle, in Lancashire, England. It is located 3 miles east of Colne, near to the junction of the Lancashire, West Yorkshire and North Yorkshire borders.
The village is a conservation area, and is closed to outside traffic. It dates back to before the 10th century BC. Central to the village are the ruins of Wycoller Hall.
A variety of ancient bridges cross Wycoller Beck, including ‘Pack-Horse Bridge’, a twin arched bridge in the centre of the village, ‘Clapper Bridge’ and ‘Clam Bridge’. The latter is believed to be of neolithic origin (at least, over 1000 years old) and is listed as an ancient monument. It consists of just a long stone laid across the river. It was damaged by floods in 1989 and 1990, though has now been repaired.
WycollerHall was originally the home of the Hartleys, and passed through marriage to the Cunliffe family in the mid-1600’s. Built in 1550 by Piers Hartley, the structure was dismantled in 1818, and reused in the construction of a cotton mill, to help repay debts owed by Henry Owen-Cunliffe, the last of the original Cunliffe line to live at the hall. The ruins are reputed to be haunted by a variety of spectres.
‘Ferndean Manor’ in Charlotte Brontë’s novel Jane Eyre is thought to be based on Wycoller Hall.The Brontë Way passes through here, leading to the Brontë sisters’ home in nearby Haworth.
