Brindle is a small village and civil parish of the borough of Chorley, Lancashire, England. It is in the centre of a triangle between Preston, Blackburn, and Chorley. The area has little industry. Brindle is one of the most affluent areas in Lancashire [1], with average earnings over 33% higher than the national average. Many notable professionals from the North West of England live in the village[citation needed], including chartered accountants, bank managers and teachers.

Brindle is home to the Anglican Saint James's church, tennis courts and a number of trails and bridle paths. As a parish offering excellent links to nearby towns including business centres such as Preston, Bolton, Chorley and Manchester. Brindle could be described as a commuter village although the village still retains a strong sense of local identity.[citation needed]
