Gary Hall, Chief Executive of Chorley Council, said: “Following on from the launch of Chorley’s first visitor information website checkoutchorley.com nearly two years ago, this video shows just how stunning the Chorley area is and how much there is for people to do.

“It shows people the many reasons why they should visit Chorley and hopefully inspires them to come and check out Chorley for themselves. If you live and work in Chorley, it also makes you feel proud to see the beautiful countryside, great attractions and fantastic events, we have on our doorstep.

“Visitors helped to boost the Chorley economy by £176 million in 2016, so it’s important that we continue to do all we can to attract even more people to the area. No matter what your age or interest, Chorley is a fantastic place to visit and we are determined to encourage even more people to check out Chorley with initiatives like this.”
