Chapelry History

SALESBURY, a chapelry, in the parish, union, and Lower division of the hundred, of Blackburn, N. division of the county of Lancaster, 4½ miles north of Blackburn. The chapel, dedicated to St. Peter, was repaired in 1844.[1]

Salesbury St Peter was created a chapel of ease created in 1809 from, and lying within the boundaries of  Blackburn St Mary, Lancashire Ancient Parish.

This completely rural parish descends northwards to a secluded and wooded reach where the River Ribble falls over shelving rocks. The Old English name is 'Salebyry', dating from 1246 AD and 'Salewelle' dating from 1296 AD. As well as St Peter’s Church, The Memorial Hall, Salesbury School and Salesbury Cricket Club, Salesbury contains the residence of the Bishop of Blackburn, known locally as the Bishop's House.
