Slaidburn, Town End
Slaidburn is a small rural village situated at the confluence of the Croasdale Brook and the River Hodder on the B6478 road from Clitheroe to Long Preston in the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The character of the village is that of a post medieval settlement, with some 17th century houses, and a number dating to the 18th century. Most of the houses date to the early 19th century; later development was limited by the isolated rural position of Slaidburn so that the housing stock established by the early 19th century has always been sufficient to meet the settlementís housing needs.

Slaidburn was originally a medieval unplanned, nucleated settlement focused around the off-set junctions of two intersecting routes that crossed Bowland from Clitheroe. Its current form reflects 16th century expansion, and later, in the form of ribbon development along Town End, Church Street and Chapel Street.
