Goldshaw Booth is a civil parish in the Pendle district of Lancashire, England. It has a population of 248,[1] and contains the village of Newchurch in Pendle and the hamlets of Spen Brook (53°50′46″N 2°16′01″W / 53.846°N 2.267°W / 53.846; -2.267 (Spen Brook)) and Sabden Fold (53°50′28″N 2°17′24″W / 53.841°N 2.290°W / 53.841; -2.290 (Sabden Fold)). Pendle Hill lies to the north.

The parish adjoins the Pendle parishes of Barley-with-Wheatley Booth, Roughlee Booth, Old Laund Booth and Higham-with-West Close Booth and the Ribble Valley parish of Sabden. It is part of the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).[2]

According to the United Kingdom Census 2011, the parish has a population of 248,[1] a decrease from 265 in the 2001 census.[3]

Goldshaw Booth was once a township in the ancient parish of Whalley. This became a civil parish in 1866, forming part of the Burnley Rural District from 1894. The township extended to cover parts of the adjoining villages of Fence and Wheatley Lane,[4] but this part transferred to Old Laund Booth in 1898. Parts of the parish also transferred to Sabden on its creation in 1904,[a] and Newchurch in Pendle also used to straddle the boundary with Roughlee Booth but was brought entirely within the parish in 1935.[5]

Along with Higham-with-West Close Booth, Barley-with-Wheatley Booth and Roughlee Booth, the parish forms the Higham with Pendleside ward of Pendle Borough Council.[6]
