Video launched to encourage people to check out Chorley

PEOPLE are being encouraged to visit and check out Chorley with the launch of a new cinematic-style video showing the beauty of the area and the many things to do on a great day out.
this video shows just how stunning the Chorley area is and how much there is for people to do.


The three minute, 28 second video has been launched by Chorley Council on Chorley’s visitor information website checkoutchorley.com to inspire potential visitors to come and experience the area’s historic buildings, beautiful parks, stunning scenery and fantastic family events for themselves.

A year in the making, the video features aerial and ground footage of Rivington, including Rivington Pike, Yarrow Valley Country Park, Astley Park, Hoghton Tower, Botany Bay, Go Ape Rivington and Chorley Markets.

Events including the Chorley Grand Prix, Chorley Flower Show, Astley Illuminated, Hoghton Tower’s The King’s Return, Picnic in the Park and the town’s Christmas celebrations are all featured to give people an insight into the many things to do and see in Chorley. 

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.”

The full video is available to view at checkoutchorley.com​ with a shorter 30 second version available on the council's social media channels.

Chorley’s visitor information website checkoutchorley.com includes pages on things to do, what’s on, blogs and an inspire me section to give people ideas of where to go and what to do in the Chorley area.

Chorley Council has worked with the local Chorley business SkyOptics Ltd to produce the Check out Chorley video, which will be used online to promote and attract more visitors to the area.
