Ribble Valley

'''Ribble Valley''' is a local government district (Non-metropolitan district) with borough status within the non-metropolitan county of Lancashire, England. Its council is based in Clitheroe. Other places include Whalley (Whalley, Lancashire), Longridge and Ribchester. The area is so called due to the River Ribble which flows in its final stages towards its estuary near Preston (Preston, Lancashire). The area is popular with tourists who enjoy the area's natural unspoilt beauty, much of which lies within the Forest of Bowland.

The Ribble Valley is statistically the wealthiest enclave in Lancashire Area Summary - Ribble Valley and businesses in the area reflect this, including a Michelin listed restaurant Michelin honour for Red Pump Inn and a Bentley car dealership. The area is a popular place with those who wish to relocate from London to somewhere more rural and community orientated. Relocation Revisit: Lancashire

The district was formed on 1 April 1974 under the Local Government Act 1972, as a merger of the municipal borough of Clitheroe, Longridge urban district (Urban district (Great Britain and Ireland)), Clitheroe Rural District, part of Blackburn Rural District, part of Burnley Rural District, and part of Preston Rural District, as well as the Bowland Rural District from the West Riding of Yorkshire, hence the addition of the Red Rose of Lancaster and White Rose of York on the council's coat of arms.
