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

Please note that all Town Council meetings will now be held at Adlington Library 

Cllr Alan Robinson was appointed Mayor and Cllr Timothy Summers was appointed Deputy Mayor at the Annual Council Meeting held on 8th May 2017. 

Cllr Barry Lee resigned from the Council at the end of April after over 20 years service to the community. This means that there is a vacancy for a Town Councillor in the East Ward of Adlington. No request for an election has been received, so the Council now intends to co-opt. Applications will be accepted until 20th August 2017, for details of eligibility and how to apply please see the notice.

The Summer edition of the Update newsletter has now been delivered to Adlington residents and is also available on our Publications page
