Coordinates: 53°42′07″N 2°24′40″W / 53.702°N 2.411°W / 53.702; -2.411 Yate and Pickup Bank is a civil parish in the Borough of Blackburn with Darwen, Lancashire, England. The parish contains two hamlets, Bank Fold and Pickup Bank, and part of the village of Belthorn, which is on the boundary with Hyndburn. It has boundaries with the parish of Eccleshill to the west, North Turton to the south, and the borough of Hyndburn, an unparished area, to the east. The parish adjoins unparished parts of Blackburn with Darwen in two places: one is near Hoddlesden in the south-west; the other, in the north, is now along the M65 motorway, after the parish was extended in 1997. As a result of the boundary changes, part of the village of Guide is now within the parish.[1][2]
