Hoghton Tower have made the difficult decision to cancel this months farmers’ market.

The January Farmers’ Market will not take place due to the ongoing pandemic and lockdown 3.

A statement from the Hoghton Tower team says: “This decision has not been taken lightly and our team has given much consideration to the current guidelines and advice from authorities.

“The Government guidance does allow outdoor markets to remain open, but for essentials only and not recreation. The guidance also instructs that people stay local, in their own village, town or area of their city.

“As Hoghton Tower is in a rural area, most visitors to our market need to travel to reach the site, therefore making it hard to abide by the current travel restrictions.

“It therefore feels against the spirit of this lockdown for us to operate the market.”
