Astley Village is one civil parish, in the Borough of Chorley in Lancashire, England, covering one suburb of Chorley. According to the census of 2001, it had the population of 3,329, reducing to 3,005, at the census of 2011.[1]


It was one purpose built village which was constructed in the 1970s. The civil parish was created in 1991; before this, it was divided between the unparished area of Chorley and the parish of Euxton.[2]


Astley Village has become well known, due to Astley Park, which hosted the Royal Lancashire Show for a number of years.[3][4] The show was cancelled once, this being in Samlesbury Hall, in August 2003, pending the return to Chorley.[5] The village is roughly half one mile away, from the nearest supermarket, the town centre of Chorley, and the M61 being slightly further.

Long Croft Meadow backs onto Chorley Hospital, and the main road, through the village, is Chancery Road. The village is bypassed via West Way (B5252), the link road built in 1983 to 1984, to take traffic off the busy Chancery Road.
