Dinckley is a small village and civil parish located in the Ribble Valley, in Lancashire, England. It is situated on the south side of the River Ribble, 6 miles (9.7 km) north of Blackburn.[2] The northern boundary of the parish is formed by the River Ribble, and the eastern boundary by Park Brook and Dinckley Brook.[3] The parish is part of the Langho ward, which is represented on Ribble Valley Borough Council by two councillors, both from the Conservative Party.[4]

Dinckley Ferry was a row boat which crossed the river[5] connecting the village to Hurst Green. The ferry was replaced by a suspension bridge in the 1950s.[6]
