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.



Chorley Borough Council is the Planning Authority for the Adlington area and publishes a weekly list of planning applications on the Chorley Council website

The Mayor of Adlington is Cllr Peter Walkden and the Deputy Mayor is Cllr Ainsley Ball

Three new Councillors were co-opted at the March meeting to the vacancies which followed the May 2019 election: Cllr Peter Wilson (North Ward), Cllr Kim Snape (West Ward) and Cllr Nina Buckley (East Ward)

The most recent edition of the "Update" newsletter should have been delivered to all Adlington residents by the middle of August. If you haven't received a copy please contact the Clerk. A digital copy is available on our Publications page

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 

Heath Charnock Parish Council has included a World War One section on its website, giving historical information related to Adlington & District
