Parish History

Pendleton Hall was an extra-parochial place lying next to the parish boundaries of Whalley Parish and Newchurch in Pendle to the northeast. See England Jurisdictions 1851

Pendleton is a small village in Ribble Valley, within the county of Lancashire, England. It is close to the towns of Whalley and Clitheroe. The village used to be a secluded village two miles from the A59, Liverpool to York main road, on the north west side of Pendle Hill at the bottom of the Nick o' Pendle. The village is now within easy access of the re-routed A59 Clitheroe By-Pass. The village has a number of tourist attractions, not least an old coaching inn, The Swan With Two Necks.

The church of Pendleton All Saints in the village was built as a chapel of ease to Whalley, Lancashire in 1847.

"PENDLETON, a township with a chapelryin Whalley parish, Lancashire; under Pendle hill, 2½ miles south by southeast of Clitheroe. Standen Hall is the seat of J. T. W. Aspinall, Esq. There are a chapel of ease, an Independent chapel, and a national school."[1]
