Rishton was really split into four parts, or sections, the whole being known
as the district of Rishton, but the four sections were all owned by different
Landowners at some point.
This is how the areas have kept their local identities, and
are still known by these names today.
There are more than four sections listed here because of the
localities own distinctions.
Tottleworth A hamlet
in its own right, once was a part of Great Harwood.
