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 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
