Adlington is a village and civil parish in Lancashire, England near the West Pennine Moors and the larger town of Chorley. It became a separate parish in 1842 then grew into a town around the textile and coal mining industries until these closed in the 1960s. Adlington has some great features such as the Leeds and Liverpool canal, which runs through the village, and is overlooked by Rivington Pike, part of the West Pennine Moors.
The Mayor of Adlington is Cllr Alison Evans and the Deputy Mayor is Cllr Jim Banks
In partnership with the North West Ambulance Service the Town Council is providing two Automated External Defibrillators in the village. The first of these is now operational and is located close to the crossroads in the centre of Higher Adlington, on the external wall of the public toilet building. The other will be located in Lower Adlington and it is hoped that this will soon be operational. The AEDs are housed in coded cabinets, and the code will be made available when a 999 call is received.
Anderton Parish Council has made a contribution of £250 towards the cost of the AED located on Babylon Lane.
