Did you know?

Cliviger is the home of the ‘lonk sheep’. They have black and white faces, and their long legs are well suited to the Pennine environment of rocky hills and peat bogs. This well-known Lancashire breed originated in the parish, and there is still a regular sheep fair which has been going on for hundreds of years. The Ram Inn is named after this.
