Trawden is a medium-sized village in the Trawden Forest parish of Pendle, at the foot of Boulsworth Hill, in Lancashire, England. Agriculture was the main industry of the village and surrounding area, although it did have several mills, most of which have now been demolished for, or converted to, housing.

As a way of encouraging people to visit Trawden and the surrounding area, a small group of village residents organise and mobilise other villagers in order to hold the annual Trawden Garden Festival and Scarecrow Trail. This takes place over the first weekend in July.[1]

Trawden also holds an annual agricultural show on the 2nd Sunday in August, which many farmers, riders and people from around Lancashire enjoy and take part in.[2]

Trawden F.C. were champions of the Pendle Charity League Second Division in the 2006–07 season.[citation needed]

Trawden Athletic Club[3] is a running club consisting of around 400 members (as of January 2017) who compete in local and regional road, fell, trail and cross country races.

The Trawden Forest Community Centre[4] is in the heart of the village. The Centre is run by a Committee of Trustees made up of volunteers from the local community. It is entirely self-funded, covering running costs through user fees supplemented by fundraising. Several local groups meet regularly at the centre and it is also used for many private and community events.

Trawden in Bloom is a voluntary organisation which is responsible for planting the baskets around the village, weeding and generally keeping the parish colourful and tidy. They include is a group of youngsters, called the Young Bloomers, who have their own raised beds for growing flowers and vegetables, besides planting tubs and weeding the pavements.

Economy
