Parish History

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.
