The History of Slaidburn, England.
Slaidburn is a village and civil parish within the Ribble Valley district of Lancashire, England. Historically a part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, Slaidburn lies near the head of the River Hodder, within the Forest of Bowland, an Area of Outstanding National Beauty. The civil parish of Slaidburn includes the settlements of Newton in Bowland, Dunsop Bridge and Easington. Farming is still a major employer, but the area attracts tourists – for walking in particular. The parish church of St Andrew has a superb Jacobean screen and a fine Georgian pulpit. The brass band composer William Rimmer (1862-1936) composed the now-popular march, named Slaidburn after the village, for the Slaidburn Silver Band.
