City: Longridge, United Kingdom
Our latest exhibition focuses on local Companies who from small beginnings established successful businesses in Longridge. Singleton’s and Ribble Farm Fare remain major employers in the town. Carefoot plc have their registered office here but Forrest’s through expansion have moved to Bolton, Leeds and Gateshead. Sadly Ridings Haulage has now gone with their offices and yard soon to be an Aldi Store and housing.
One of our display boards traces the introduction of gas to Longridge which arrived in 1867 – 150 years ago.
