Head of Fine & Country Sales
Whalley is a large village situated at the heart of the Ribble Valley below Whalley Nab and on the banks of the River Calder. Whalley Abbey has ruins dating back to the 14th Century and other long standing buildings including one in particular Mortimers sold in circa 2004 that had an original Priest Hole!
King Street runs through the heart of the village towards Clitheroe with many small roads off leading to small nearby villages. There is an exceptional Primary school and renowned Oakhill College and Nursery that offer local education and excellent bus and rail transport links lead on through to Clitheroe and Manchester.
The village shuts its roads for Whalley Pickwick Night held early December every year for an event that draws crowds from wide reaching areas for a Dickensian themed evening where many local shopkeepers get in to the spirit of things.
There is nearby cuisine and fine dining as the area is well served with top class restaurants and hotels including the Michelin Star Northcote Manor, the James Place chain and several other highly regarded venues.
It is clear to see why Whalley is one of the major property hotspots in the North of England.Find out more
