Habergham Eaves is a civil parish in the borough of Burnley, in Lancashire, England. The parish consists of a rural area south of Burnley, and suburban areas on the outskirts of the town, including a large industrial estate in the north-west corner of the parish. Habergham is also the name of an area west of Burnley, although it is no longer within the parish.[2] According to the United Kingdom Census 2011, the parish has a population of 1,466.[1]

The A646 Padiham to Todmorden road runs approximately along the northern boundary of the parish. Surrounding areas include the unparished areas of Burnley and Rossendale, and the parishes of Hapton, Dunnockshaw and Cliviger.


Habergham Eaves township historically extended further to the north from Gawthorpe Hall in the west to Towneley Hall in the east, the River Calder generally separating it from the neighbouring townships, and from 1861 the Borough of Burnley. However, in 1894 a large part of the township, with a population of over 40,000 and including Rose Grove, Burnley Wood, Gannow and Habergham, was transferred to the County Borough of Burnley, and taken out of the control of the newly established Lancashire County Council. The remainder, with the exception of a small area transferred to Ightenhill, became the civil parish of Habergham Eaves.[3][4] During World War II a Starfish site bombing decoy was constructed off Crown Point Road, part of a network designed to protect Accrington.[5]


Habergham Eaves 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.[3] Since 1974 Habergham Eaves has formed part of the Borough of Burnley. A boundary change which took effect at the start of 1983, transferred a small part of parish lying west of Limey Lane into Dunnockshaw.[6]

Along along with Dunnockshaw and a small part of Burnley, the parish forms the Coalclough with Deerplay ward of the borough council.[7] The ward elects three councillors, currently Gordon Birtwistle and Howard Baker of the Liberal Democrats, and Bill Brindle (Labour).[8] The parish is represented on Lancashire County Council as part of the Padiham & Burnley West division, represented since 2017 by Alan Hosker (Conservative).[9]

The Member of Parliament for Burnley, the constituency into which the parish falls, is Antony Higginbotham (Conservative), who was first elected in 2019.


According to the United Kingdom Census 2011, the parish has a population of 1,466, a decrease from 1,581 in the 2001 census. This represents a decline of 7.8% over ten years. The parish has an area of 744 hectares (2.87 sq mi; 7.44 km2), giving a population density of 1.97 inhabitants per hectare (510/sq mi; 197/km2).[1][10] The developed parts of the parish were included in the Burnley Built-up area, defined in the 2011 census which had a population of 149,422.[11]

In 2011 the average (mean) age of residents was 43.4 years, with a roughly even distribution between males and females. The racial composition was 98.4% White (96.6% White British), 1.2% Asian, 0.1% Black and 0.3% Mixed. The largest religious groups were Christian (79.1%), Hindu (0.5%) and Muslim (0.3%). 69.4% of adults between the ages of 16 and 74 were classed as economically active and in work.[1]
