At one time Rimington and Middop had 2 corn mills, 2 textile mills, 2 schools, 2 chapels, and one public house, along with many shops and other businesses. In the late 19th and early 20th century it must have been a very bustling and busy place. Now there is Martin Top Chapel, and Cosgroves dress shop which is on the site of what was a garage. What has not changed is the beautiful view of Pendle;
so, come along to enjoy some lovely countryside on a 2 mile walk and get a glimpse into Rimington’s past, followed by refreshments at Rimington Memorial
Institute, where there will be a ‘mini’ exhibition about the archaeological activities in Rimington. Members £3, Non-members £5. Car parking is in a layby by Bustards Farm, Rimington Lane BB7 4DS
