Things to do
Longridge is a vibrant Lancashire town with lots of local amenities, including supermarkets, independent shops, a library and leisure facilities, including football pitches and golf courses. There are plenty of cafes, pubs and restaurants, including long-running Italian establishment Francos, The Potting Shed and The Alston.
A gateway to the Ribble Valley, Longridge is situated on the edge of a settlement and is surrounded by miles of charming countryside. From long leisurely walks to hiking, there is an abundance of rolling green fields, fells and rugged landscape in the region to explore, including Longridge Fell (the most southerly fell in England), Fair Snape Fell and Parlick, plus the Forest of Bowland (AONB).
The River Ribble runs through Longridge and there are several Reservoirs in the locality, which means bell boating, sailing, canoeing and other water sports activities can be enjoyed.
Steeped in history, and only a short drive away from the development is Alston Hall, a Grade II Listed 19th Century Victorian gothic style country mansion set in 9.6 acres of land.
