Earby is a town and civil parish within the Borough of Pendle in Lancashire, England. It is 5 miles (8 km) north of Colne, 7 miles (11.3 km) south-west of Skipton, and 11 miles (17.7 km) north-east of Burnley. The parish had a population of 4,538 recorded in the 2011 census,[1]


Historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, from 1909 to 1974, Earby formed an urban district. Since 1974 Earby has been in the West Craven[2] area of Pendle, has a town council, and is part of the West Craven Area Committee on Pendle Borough Council.[3][4]

Nearby places include Thornton in Craven and Barnoldswick.

Earby also had its own railway station, but it was closed in 1970. The station was an interchange with the small branch to Barnoldswick. It has a daily bus service (280) between Preston and Skipton operated by Stagecoach together with a daily bus service (M5) from Barnoldwick to Burnley provided by The Burnley Bus Company (Transdev)'.

Old Grammar School – now Lead Mining Museum

The Yorkshire Dales Lead Mining Museum was based in the old Grade II* listed Grammar School building.[6] This closed in January 2016. The Robert Windle's Foundation, a charity established in the 1600s, and original owners of the building have now taken back control and are working to establish a community hub and café for the benefit of the residents of the locality.

Local media

Earby is served by television from both Leeds and Manchester; ITV (Yorkshire Television) and BBC North are both transmitted from the television mast at East Marton, 3 miles (4.8 km) north of Earby.[7] BBC North West and ITV (Granada Television) are both received directly from the main Winter Hill transmitter.[8] The BBC has a relay that overlooks Earby and has the four main BBC national FM radio stations (Radio 1 to 4).[9] Fresh Radio[10] in Skipton covers the area on MW 1413 kHz.

The local press is published weekly; the Barnoldswick and Earby Times[11] is published on Fridays and is covered at Pendle Today. Some of the Yorkshire press is circulated in the area – due to the geographical anomaly. The Craven Herald & Pioneer[12] and Yorkshire Post[13] are prominent.

In 2012, a local radio station was broadcast for the first time: West Craven Community Radio, an online based station serving the community of West Craven area of Pendle and beyond, including listeners afar as San Francisco and Malaysia. The station, run by non-paid volunteers, was originally broadcast three days a week. In December 2012, it was broadcasting on four days a week including Friday evenings.[14] In 2013, it was hoping to raise enough money for an FM licence from Ofcom.[15] However, there is no current radio station on analogue radio licensed specifically for Earby as a commercial radio station and no community radio station for the same area with a licence from Ofcom.[16][17]
