Longridge is an historic town positioned above the Ribble River, in the county of Lancashire, and is home to just over seven and a half thousand people. It has an interesting history which dates as far back in time as the Bronze Age, the small agricultural settlement grew up around the church and remained the same for centuries until the arrival of the Industrial Revolution in the 19th Century which brought the Railway, steam powered Cotton Mills and the Quarries whose stone was transported for miles around resulting in growth and expansion. Walkers will always be tempted here as there a five Heritage Trails, beautiful surrounding countryside with a network of paths, and it's the gateway to the ancient Forest of Bowland. A stroll around the town will uncover attractive limestone houses that line the roads, a good choice of restaurants and pubs that offer coffee or something a little stronger; and there's an impressive church dedicated to St Lawrence which has stood the test of time. Visitors who wish to stay a while will find B&B's, and comfortable hotels, there's also a good choice of shops, and as Longridge is only three miles or so from the historic Roman village of Ribchester it's ideally placed.
