Add Longton to your Itinerary


Longton is a small rural community in the west of South Ribble and a village of ancient origin. The parish church, St Andrew's, was completed in 1887, but there is a record of a chapel on the same site as long ago as AD 1150. A document refers to 'Eaford priest of Longton' of that date. Visit the Longton Brickcroft Nature Reserve, a site of local conservation importance, managed as a wetland nature reserve with facilities for fishing, picnics, informal recreation and nature appreciation. The reserve is located on the left leaving the village on the A59, Liverpool Road.

In addition to Longton, Hutton, Hoole & Much Hoole are also small villages located in the rural Western Parishes of South Ribble. Each village has their own characteristic centres where you will find a range of unique and independent shops, tea rooms and local pubs. Located nearby is the Ribble Estuary, which is an exceptional place for bird watching, the sandflats support different birds such as Bar-tailed Godwit, Knot and Sanderling enthusiast or novices will thoroughly enjoy the spectacle that is unique to the area!
