Bilsborrow // is a village on the A6 road and the Lancaster Canal, in the Wyre District, in the English county of Lancashire. It is approximately 1 mile (2 km) east of Myerscough. Bilsborrow was a civil parish until 2003 when it merged with the neighbouring parish of Myerscough to form the parish of Myerscough and Bilsborrow.
Bilsborrow has a primary school, a post office and local shop, and a fish and chip shop, St Hilda's Church of England church and two public houses, the Roebuck and the White Bull, a canalside tavern Owd Nell's Tavern, a Premier Inn hotel, a canalside lodge, a guest house, and a themed thatched hamlet 'village' with restaurant, hotel and tavern.
In the former parish is the hamlet of Duncombe. In the 1950s there was a large paper mill at Matshead. The river Brock is crossed by Walmesley Bridge; it is dated 1883 but looks much older.
