The local area guide to living in Whalley

Sat on the banks of the River Calder, overlooked by the forest known as the Whalley Nab, lies the village of Whalley. A charming little place, found in the Ribble Valley of Lancashire, the village has existed for several hundred years, resisting the pushes and pulls of industrialisation and remaining a picturesque little place.

Here you can find small cottages sitting beside Tudor and Georgian facades, as well as surprisingly modern and trendy boutiques and some of the finest dining in the region. The village hosts its own church, the parish Church of St. Mary and All Saints, whilst the nearby Whalley Nab borders the ruins of a 13th century Cistercian Whalley Abbey. Today, the abbey’s ruins fall within the grounds of a stately manor, one which is currently utilised as a retreat and conference centre.

Information about the local residents

The nearby conference centre, in fact, speaks greatly of the region at large, as the Ribble Valley is one where over a quarter of its residents work as professionals. Many of the other residents of the valley can be found working in agriculture, as farms are scattered all over the region.

Some of the village’s residents commute to work, either in the nearby city of Blackburn, or some to Preston, both cities within a forty-minute commute. Most of the residents are English, typically having been born and raised in the village, and as such there’s a proud sense of local pride in the village. A fierce determination to maintain the aesthetic of the village exists and whilst local residents enjoy modern amenities and shopping, they’ve managed to keep the old facades of the village intact.

Nearby schools

A single primary school can be found in the village, the Whalley CofE Primary School, which most of the village’s children attend at some point. Once completing primary education, students tend to go to the local Oakhill College, a co-ed Catholic school within the village, or the St. Augustine Roman Catholic High School in nearby Billington.

No matter what the choice, parents can rest easy with the knowledge that the Ribble Valley performs higher in GCSEs than any other area in Lancashire, ensuring that the education needs of children are more than met.

Getting around

The village hosts a railway station run by Northern Rail, which sits on the Blackburn to Manchester line, offering simple commuting to those who seek it. Those hopping to the surrounding villages could do so by road, though the many walking or cycling paths that exist in the countryside are also good options.

The A59 and A67 run past the village, and the M65 can be reached within 10 minutes, connecting the village to the motorway grid at large. Bus routes run in and around the village, allowing for another method to reach other locales, commute to cities, or travel to nearby schools.

Local shops

As mentioned, the village maintains its aesthetic effectively, though the shopping and dining in the village is nothing short of superb. Beyond the ordinary stores that we come to expect, such as supermarkets, pubs, a library and so on, Whalley hosts several high fashion boutiques.

Poshu, a designer store, sells brands from across Europe such as the illustrious Dolce & Gabbana and Marc Jacobs, whilst nearby Precious boasts designer jewellery and accessories from far and afield. Whalley Wine Shop is also quite excellent, offering many tastings and drinks by the glass - serving the village with superb vintages from across Europe.

Dining is also a pleasure in Whalley, with several restaurants in the village having been recognised nationally. Food by Breda Murphy has been included in the Michelin guide for several years now, serving organic, locally sourced food with its chefs having worked in the Michelin restaurant circuit for several years now. Nearby, Cucina 73 serves delicious Italian meals. If you’re serious about your food, paying a visit to either of these two esteemed venues is a must!
