Longridge is a small town and civil parish within the borough of Ribble Valley in the ceremonial county of Lancashire, in the north of England. The village can be found at the western end of Longridge Fell above the River Ribble, and is situated approximately eight miles to the north east of the settlement of Preston.
The History Of The Town Of Longridge
Originally, the settlement now known as Longridge began to grow slowly around the area of St Lawrence Church, which is actually now found to the south east of the current town centre. This growth was slow and stilted, however, and it was only after the building of the Preston and Longridge Railway Line in the early 19th century, that the town began to expand in earnest. This railway was constructed in order to assist the quarrying and cotton industries of the region and it was these which also provided the economic impetus for the growth of Longridge.
Despite the fact that the town’s cotton mills and quarries are now largely closed, the town enjoyed a long enough period of growth for it to remain a significant and lively population centre. In fact, according to the 2011 census there are currently close to 8,000 Longridge residents who enjoy facilities in the town including no fewer than 11 public houses, a public library, a number of restaurants and several schools. This makes the town a busy and active settlement which has both advantages and disadvantages for the local residents.
