Norden Courts are situated on the North Eastern corner of Harwood Road and High Street. Built in 1983, the site was originally a row of terraced houses and shops on High Street, and a small block of houses on Harwood Road.
The shops included the Coop butchers, and the Shoe Box shoe shop. Further down the block was a tripe shop.
The houses that were demolished on Harwood road to make way for these flats were once cottages which were demolished to make way for the houses! The cottages were once some of the oldest houses in Rishton before demolition.
