Longridge, Lancashire

There's lots to see and do in Lancashire. A hot air balloon flight may be perfect for a birthday gift or special celebration.

The market town of Longridge, which probably takes its name from Longridge Fell, is about 6 miles north-east of Preston. It is reached from Preston on the A6 through the village of Broughton, then the B5269 through Goosnargh and Cumeragh. The village of Ribchester is south-east of Longridge. The three Alston Reservoirs are south of both Longridge High School and St. Cecelia’s High School, and west of College Wood. Longridge has an outdoor market on Thursdays. Most of the Victorian buildings in the town are mainly built of stone from local quarries and roofed with blue welsh slate. There are at least 23 listed buildings, including the Railway Station, St. Paul’s Church, St. Wilfred’s Church, the Old Fire Station, and the remains of Cramp Oak Mill and Oakbridge Mill.

Prior to the rise of industry in the mills, quarries and railway, this was mainly a farming community. Stone from Longridge quarries was used in the building of Preston’s Harris Museum, Fulwood Barracks, Preston Railway Station and dockland buildings at Liverpool. Longridge Golf Club and cricket ground lie to the north east of the town.
