Chipping village is located in a delightful setting within the Forest of Bowland (AONB). It has a Parish Church dating back to the 13th century which houses a font which has been used for more than 400 years. Many of the buildings including local public houses are linked with tales of love, passion, hangings and ghosts. The village is a popular venue for its summer Steam Engine Show, and the active local clubs and shows in the new village hall. The historic village is surrounded by farmland and hills in its location above the River Loud. In Medieval Chipping there were a few water mills along Chipping Brook, one of which can still be seen today from a bridge over the brook. The wool trade prospered in this village in the 17th century which explains why such wealth was used to improve the buildings in the village at this time. The village has an old well which is no longer used and being in a conservation area, has old cottages whose very low doorways have stone sides and lintels standing at the side of the main street and others with neat doorways and mullioned windows. The 17th century old school building and alms houses were provided by a local dyer and cloth merchant, John Brabin whose will provided for the poor. Berry’s furniture factory employs local people and produces quality solid wood ladderback chairs as well as modern chairs and tables. Many visitors to Chipping like to watch Gliders being lifted, released and returning in local fields and paragliders launching themselves from a great height on a hill to the north of the village. Only 3 moorland miles to the north east of Chipping lies the Wild Boar Park which has a variety of animal attractions, cafe and tractor/trailer rides around the 65 acre site.
