Chatburn is a village located in the Ribble Valley, East Lancashire, England. It is situated in a hollow between two ridges north-east of Clitheroe, just off the A59 road. It lies near Pendle Hill, which is to the east of the village. The River Ribble flows to the west of the town. The town is approximately 400 feet above sea level.
The village itself can be dated back to Anglo-Saxon times; it takes its name from one of the most distinguished characters of that time, St Chad. The village sits outside the Forest of Bowland and was never considered part of the ancient Lordship of Bowland.
A feature of the village is the spire of the parish church, which was erected around 1838. The steeple was struck by lightning in 1854, but was rebuilt in the same year.
Chatburn also had its own railway station, but it was closed in 1962 before the report of Dr Beeching..
The village also features Chatburn Post Office which was bombed during the Second World War.
