"To the Visitor - Rishton may appear to be just another
small industrial East Lancashire Township, but to us it is home, our place of
livelihood, and our part of Britain, of which we are rightly proud.
Rishton may not boast some of the amenities enjoyed by
larger townships, but in a community of this size we may claim a more intimate
contact with our fellow townsmen and a greater good neighbourly feeling amongst
Councillor J. W. Sanderson, J. P. 1951.
On this web site we have endeavoured to portray our way of life and to
give a brief history of all of our institutions with a view to refreshing our
minds by recalling Rishtons achievements and thus increasing our civic pride. On
the site you will (hopefully) find not only the history of Rishton, but
everything there is to know about the town, its location, its secrets, stories
and characters. The everyday people that you can find in a million other small
towns like this, but this one is OURS!
