LANESHAW BRIDGE (or Laneshawbridge) is a village and civil parish in the borough of Pendle. It is to the east of Colne in Lancashire and is the easternmost settlement in Lancashire (via the main road route) before the West Yorkshire border.

At first sight you might think that Laneshaw Bridge, with its quaint, underestimated cottages, is just a sleepy village tucked away near the Yorkshire border, but this attractive little village has a lot more to offer than that, and there is chapter and verse of history to go with it. Just off the A6068 which runs from Colne through to Keighley.

Laneshaw Bridge is only ten miles from Skipton and seven to Haworth. Surrounded by breath taking scenery, in the shadow of Boulsworth Hill and Emmott Moor.


Rising as Laneshaw Brook on the border between the counties of Lancashire and Yorkshire from the collection of several streams draining both sides of the boundary, including Round Beck, the brook runs northwards, feeding the Laneshaw Reservoir, emerging running towards the rest as the River Laneshaw.

The River Laneshaw combines with Wycoller Beck at Covey Bridge to form Colne Water.


This regions main industry was traditionally Cotton, whereas a few miles up the road in Yorkshire it was Wool. Manufacturing and trading of both these textiles was, for many years, the principle business here. Now there are just museums and old and empty mills that evoke a time gone by. Clues to this past are all around the area here.

Find out more about Laneshaw Bridge and it’s history by using the links under the History section.

On this Website you will find information on the many activities both here in North East Lancashire and neighbouring places all steeped in both history and culture as well as a useful accommodation guide. Laneshaw Bridge is only a few miles from the home of the Bronte’s, being so close makes it an ideal place to stay for exploring this whole area.
