Pendleton Village

Pendleton Village, Lancashire

Pendleton is a civil parish and traditional Lancashire farming village  situated at the foot of Pendle Hill near to the market town of Clitheroe in the Ribble Valley.

Pendleton or 'Peniltune' was mentioned in the Doomsday book of 1086 and there is Bronze Age evidence to suggest much earlier settlement.

Today the village boasts a picturesque church (All Saints), an award winning pub (The Swan with Two Necks) and a well supported Village Hall. The civil parish forms the Wiswell and Pendleton ward of Ribble Valley Borough Council.

According to the United Kingdom Census 2011, the parish has a population of 349, an increase from 203 in the 2001 census.
