Grindleton towards Pendle
Perched on a hillside, commanding extensive views of the picturesque Ribble Valley stands Grindleton . It is situated across the River Ribble from Sawley, a couple of miles outside Clitheroe. This small rural community once relied heavily on weaving and spinning. Set amidst rolling pastures the church of St. Ambrose once served a population of hand-weavers; it retains its neat Georgian tower (1805). Though the rest was re-designed by Paley circa 1897. Christianity has flourished here from the days of Sawley Abbey and one of the 17th century curates founded the 'Grindletonians' - forerunners of the Quakers. Notice the superb engraved window by David Peace and the attractively painted organ pipes. To commemorate the Millennium, the village now has its own heritage trail. The walk takes approx. 1 hour and maps can be obtained from the Buck Inn and the Duke of York pub in the village or Clitheroe Tourist Information Centre.
