Eccleston is a village and civil parish of the Borough of Chorley in Lancashire, England. It is beside the River Yarrow and was formerly an agricultural and later a weaving settlement.HistoryIts name came from the Celtic word "eglēs" meaning a church, and the Old English word "tūn" meaning a farmstead or settlement - i.e. a settlement by a Romano-British church. Evidence of the settlement dates back hundreds of years; St. Mary's Church dates back to the 14th century AD. The village was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, the book ordered by William the Conqueror to detail all settlements and farms in England for the purpose of tax collection.PopulationAccording to the United Kingdom Census 2011 the parish has a population of 4,263.GovernanceSince 2010, Eccleston has been in the South Ribble constituency for Westminster elections. Before this, the village was in Chorley constituency. However, Eccleston will soon be re-incorporated into the South Ribble constituency.
