Fence St Anne was a chapelry of Whalley, Lancashire

Fence lies in the civil parish of Old Laund Booth, which was in the Hundred of Blackburn. Up until Late medieval times it lay in the Forest of Pendle, i.e. in the hunting preserve of the King. The name of the village is derived from the fact that an enclosure was erected in the area within which the King's deer were kept. This became known as the "Fence" and the community that built up around it over time took the name. In 1507 Henry VII "surrendered [the parcel called the Fence] to the use of the tenants of Higham, West Close and Goldshaw Booth, to be held by them and their heirs for ever". First mention of Fence is in a document of 1402 as 'Fens in Penhill'.

Being near Pendle Hill, Fence has a long shared history with other Pendleside villages and the Pendle Witches.
