Belthorn is a small moorland village of approximately 220 houses – mainly traditional hand-loom weavers and coal miners’ cottages – situated along the boundary between Hyndburn and Blackburn with Darwen boroughs. It is considered to be one of the highest village in Lancashire which allows superb views to the coast and the Yorkshire three peaks.
A village committee was formed over 25 years ago and today consists of approximately nine members with the aim of promoting and encouraging community spirit and improving village life for its inhabitants of all ages and abilities. Monthly committee meetings are held to which all villagers are invited and encouraged to attend to offer suggestions, discuss issues or merely observe. Bi-monthly PACT meetings are also held.
A regular newsletter is produced by the committee “The Belthorn Link” which keeps villagers informed of school, church and village events together with general village news. It is partly funded by villagers’ business adverts.
