The Parish has been hit hard by the news that our two local bus services, Blackburn to Chipping and Clitheroe to Chipping, will cease operating from 21 February. Here is a response from the Parish Council.
"It is written upon a wall in Rome; Ribchester was as rich as any town in Christendom"
This is the website of Ribchester Parish Council, serving the people of Ribchester, Stydd and Knowle Green in the Ribble Valley.
Ribchester lies in a curve of the River Ribble in Lancashire, mid-way between Preston and Clitheroe. It is a pleasant jumble of multi-coloured stone cottages in long twisting terraces with a rich and well preserved historical tradition. The village is famous for its idyllic setting on the River Ribble and for being the site of the Roman fort of Bremetennacum.
Please contact us if you have questions concerning the work of the Parish Council, if you have any concerns that you feel the Council should be aware of or where we can help or support you.
