Longridge

Trip Planner Europe  /  UK  /  England  /  Lancashire  /  Longridge
Longridge is a medium-sized town and civil parish in the borough of Ribble Valley in Lancashire, England. It is situated 8mi north-east of the city of Preston, at the western end of Longridge Fell, a long ridge above the River Ribble. Its nearest neighbours are Grimsargh and the Roman town of Ribchester (Bremetennacum), 3.5mi to the southeast. The parish of Longridge had a population of 7,546 recorded in the 2001 census, increasing to 7,724 at the 2011 Census.HistoryThe Battle of Preston started from Longridge, Cromwell halting there before taking on Monarchist forces from Scotland. Longridge initially developed outwards from an area around St. Lawrence's Church, at the boundary of the townships of Dilworth and Alston and to the south of the modern-day town centre. Though there was a thoroughfare called 'Market Place', there was no development around that area. Most of the development of the town occurred after 1800. After this time, development occurred at a much faster pace, with expansion northwards including a mill to the north of Kestor Lane.
Longridge is in Lancashire. Take a peek at our world travel planner: Longridge and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
