Parish History

A Topographical Dictionary of England 1848

LUMB, a hamlet and ecclesiastical district, in the parochial chapelry of Newchurch-in-Rossendale, parish of Whalley, union of Haslingden, Higher division of the hundred of Blackburn, N. division of Lancashire, 10 miles (N. N. W.) from Rochdale; containing 2262 inhabitants. The hamlet, which is of small extent, is situated in a picturesque valley, along which runs the stream or brook Whitewell; the scenery around is bold and mountainous, reminding the traveller much of the hills of Derbyshire. There are numerous quarries of good building-stone, and abundance of coal, in the district; articles of great importance to the several woollen and cotton mills built along the banks of the stream. The foundation stone of the church, to be called St. Michael’s, was laid by John Hargreaves, Esq., the donor of the site, on Michaelmas-day, 1847, and it is intended that the building shall contain 600 sittings: divine service is at present performed in a licensed room. The patronage is vested, conformably with the provisions of the act 6th and 7th Victoria, cap. 37, in the Crown and the Bishop of Manchester, alternately. The Baptists and Methodists have places of worship.
