Trawden Forest is a civil parish in the Pendle district of Lancashire, England. It has a population of 2,765,[1] and contains the village of Trawden (formerly called Beardshaw) and the hamlets of Cottontree, Winewall and Wycoller. Boulsworth Hill is a well known local landmark situated within the parish. It takes its name from a medieval royal forest or "chase" which was in the same area.

Trawden was once a township in the ancient parish of Whalley. This became a civil parish in 1866, forming an urban district from 1894.[2]

The parish adjoins the Pendle parishes of Nelson, Colne and Laneshaw Bridge, the Burnley parish of Briercliffe and West Yorkshire.
