Wray with Botton


Wray with Botton is a civil parish in the City of Lancaster district in Lancashire.

Wray is situated in a beautiful location in the Lune Valley.

The river Roeburn flows through the Village meeting with the river Hindburn and on into the river Wenning.

Wray is home to the annual Scarecrow festival, which attracts lots of visitors over the May bank holiday, with a giant Scarecrow parade and a Fair on Bank holiday Monday.

There are lots of nearby scenic walks from a tough trek up on the fells, made worth it with fabulous Lake district and Sea views, not to mention views of the three peaks of Ingleborough, Whernside and Penyghent, to a gentle meander down by the river Roeburn, made famous by the Flood in 1967.  Wray is served with a Post office and general store, the George and Dragon public house, Bridge House Farm Tea rooms and Greenfoot Garden Centre,  a Village Institute which regularly holds Village functions, the Church of the Holy Trinity and the Methodist Chapel.

The Parish Council meet on the second Monday of January, March, May, July, September & November at 7.30pm in the Village Institute. The meetings are open to the public and all are welcome to attend.
