Clayton-le-Dale is a village and civil parish[1] situated on the A59 road near Blackburn, in Lancashire, England. The population of the civil parish as of the 2011 census was 1,228.[2] The village is in the Ribble Valley local government district.

The parish is mainly agricultural.[1] Since the foot-and-mouth crisis in 2001 local businesses have started to diversify; for example Dowsons started making ice cream on their dairy farm[3] and supplying Asda and Booths supermarkets, as well as producing unusual flavours of ice cream including black pudding flavour.[4]

Other examples of diversification in Clayton-le-Dale include tourism, and the development of industrial units in the village with Fairfield Business Park giving home to companies such as Ski & Trek, Evabel Ltd, Paul Case Furniture, and Mellor Cars.[5]
