About Ashton-on-Ribble

Ashton-on-Ribble is a suburb of Preston, Lancashire, UK. The maps are not very clear about the exact limits of Ashton-on-Ribble, so for the purposes of this website we take the term to include most areas to the west of Preston, including the docks, the university, Lea, Larches, Savick.

Note that Ashton-on-Ribble is not necessarily the same as Ashton. The two terms are often confused but there are some subtle differences. Click here for an article explaining these differences.

    I came across your great little website whilst looking for information about Lea Hall Farmhouse.

    I am from Fulwood and would like to congratulate you on this website. Why not complement it with a Facebook page?

    Hi Peter, thanks for that. Nice to know that people as far away as Fulwood appreciate the website :-). Good idea about setting up the Facebook page…

    Reading that Blackpool road used to be Long Lane which I remembered, made me wonder if anyone remembered Liveley Polly Corner.
