Inglewhite

A spacious village 7 miles  (12km) from Preston in Lancashire, Inglewhite is on the edge of the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  Sheep and cattle fairs once took place here until they were stopped in the 19th century by a vicar who was opposed to the practice of bull baiting.
The market cross dates from around 1500 and has the initials of the then lord of the manor engraved on it dated 1675.
A silk mill powered by a water wheel once stood in the village and the names of two of the local streets here reflect the industry that once thrived here.  A village smithy which closed in 1992 once made ammunition boxes during World War I.
There were three pubs in Inglewhite, the Queen's Arms and the Black Bull which closed in the early 20th century leaving the Green Man which is owned by Mikoh Inns which also owns the White Bull in nearby Bilsborrow.
The local church is Inglewhite Congregational Church and hosts a family worship at 10:45 on Sunday mornings and evening worship at 19:00 on Sundays.
