BAMBER-BRIDGE, an ecclesiastical district, in the chapelry of Walton-le-Dale, parish, and Lower division of the hundred, of Blackburn, union of Preston, N. division of the county of Lancaster, 3½ miles (S. S. E.) from Preston, on the road to Chorley; containing about 3000 inhabitants. The soil of the district is a stiff clay; the surface is undulated, and the scenery picturesque. The village, which is very pleasant, is the spot where the Claytons established print-works as early as 1760. A cotton-mill, belonging to William Eccles, Esq., employs 500 hands; another, the property of Richard Bashall, Esq., employs a like number; and a third, the property of Richard Ashworth, Esq., employs 250. Among the seats in the vicinity are, Lostock Hall, the residence of William Clayton, Esq.; Withy Grove, the residence of Mr. Eccles; and Lostock House, the residence of Mr. Bashall. Bamber-Bridge House, the original seat of the Clayton family, is now divided into several dwellings. The Blackburn and Preston railway has a station at this place. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the patronage of the Vicar of Blackburn, with a net income of £150, and a residence. The church, dedicated to Our Saviour, is a very neat structure in the Romanesque style, with a graceful spire; it was built in 1837, at a cost of £2200. Robert Townley Parker, Esq., of Cuerden Hall, has erected a vault under the chancel, as the future burial-place of his family. There is a national and Sunday school, in which more than 400 children receive instruction.
