Adlington is a village and civil parish in Lancashire, England near the West Pennine Moors and the larger town of Chorley. It became a separate parish in 1842 then grew into a town around the textile and coal mining industries until these closed in the 1960s. Adlington has some great features such as the Leeds and Liverpool canal, which runs through the village, and is overlooked by Rivington Pike, part of the West Pennine Moors.
The Mayor of Adlington is Cllr Alan Robinson and the Deputy Mayor is Cllr Timothy Summers
The next event to raise funds for the Mayor's Charity will be a Bingo Night with free hotpot supper on Tuesday 27th March. This will take place at St Paul's Club on Railway Road at 8pm.
The Annual Town Meeting and Annual Council meetings will take place this year on Monday 14th May from 7.15pm at Adlington Library. These meetings are held each year to formally appoint a new Mayor and to recognise the acheivements of the Council and individual residents during the past year. Everyone is welcome to attend.
Adlington Circular Walk is a 5.6 mile route around the village, maintained by Lancashire County Council. If you'd like to get involved with other local volunteers in publicising and monitoring the condition of the walk please contact the Clerk
The Town Council is very concerned that access for pedestrians around Adlington is being restricted by vehicles parking on pavements. The Council has distributed leaflets in some problem areas to remind drivers to leave enough room and to be aware that parents with pushchairs, the elderly and anyone with mobility issues may need a little more space to pass. A copy of the leaflet is available here
