Announcing the Parish News Archives

Revisit local stories right back to 2004

Parish News has been the official local newsletter for the Pendle villages of Barley, Goldshaw Booth and Roughlee for over 20 years.

We’re very pleased to be able to announce the release of the full archives of Parish News online, dating right back to 2004. It’s a treasure chest of local stories and interesting nuggets: the time the centre of Newchurch was covered in cement from a leaky wagon; the quick drink Ann Widdecombe enjoyed at the Bay Horse Inn; or the proposal for the creation of the super-parish Barchurchlee – dive in and enjoy some fond local memories!

Many thanks to Janet Starkie for her help in collating this archive. Our sincere thanks also for the many years of hard work and dedication past editors have put into creating these monthly editions: James Starkie (Editor, 2003-2020); John Parsons (2020-2021) and Lee Hunt (2022).
