Set in the picturesque Ribble Valley, a few miles to the west of Clitheroe, the village of Chipping is a gem of rural Lancashire rightly proud of its history. Chipping was once the market centre for the area, indeed the name is derived from Chepyn, an old English word for market. The village thrives still, though the market is long gone. The oldest of its three churches is St Bartholomew’s, founded in 597, although the bulk of the building is dates from 1506. Much of Chipping’s architecture is seventeenth century. The Post Office is Britain’s oldest continuously trading shop, built in 1668 by cloth merchant John Brabin. When Brabin died in 1683 his money built the almshouses and old schoolhouse on cobbled Windy Street, a quaint spot flanked by stone cottages with traditional mullioned windows and tiny gardens. The village boasts a fine ghost story. Lizzie Dean, a barmaid at the Sun Inn, hanged herself after seeing her fiancé marrying another. The vicar refused her request to be buried beneath St Bartholomew’s path (to make her lover walk over her to get to church), and so she supposedly haunts the Sun to this day. As well as churches there are three more Chs to note here. Cheese (there are several craft producers of Lancashire cheese); chairs (H.J. Berry has made furniture in a mill beside Chipping Brook since the 1890s), and beautiful chestnut trees.
