Chapelry History

CHATBURN,(Christ Church) was created a chapelry in 1838 and taken from, and lying within Whalley, union of Clitheroe, Higher division of the hundred of Blackburn, N. division of the county of Lancaster, 2¼ miles (N. E. by E.) from Clitheroe. This township is situated on the river Ribble, at the base of Pendle hill, and on the road from Clitheroe to Skipton. [1]

The village itself can be dated back to Anglo-Saxon times; it takes its name from one of the most distinguished characters of that time, St Chad. The village sits outside the Forest of Bowland and was never considered part of the ancient Lordship of Bowland.
