Welcome to the website for the Parish Council of Mellor in the Ribble Valley, Lancashire, England.

Sitting just 3½ miles north-west of the town of Blackburn, and measuring a full 4 miles by approx. 1½ miles, Mellor is a delightful village set in the rural backdrop of the Ribble Valley and a mile or so shy from the River Ribble.    With a growing population of 1490 at the last census, it is a thriving community with a primary school, 2 churches, a village hall, a library, a doctors surgery, a bus service and a small number of local shops and pubs.

The parish has many groups and organisations catering for all ages. From PreSchool facilities, a Mother and Toddler group, Rainbows, Brownies and Guides for the girls, Cubs and Scouts for the boys, a Youth Club, a Youth Fellowship and teenage pool club for the youngsters to indoor bowling, badminton, gardening, luncheon clubs, Mothers Union, Mens Group and Ladies Fellowship – there is something going on for everyone.

Mellor has very close links with the village of Mellor Brook – through which the eponymous stream flows, although only part of the village is contained within our parish. We also have good links with neighbouring Ribble Valley parishes, namely Balderstone, Clayton-Le-Dale, Osbaldeston and Ramsgreave; and to our immediate north west is Samlesbury in South Ribble.
