Ribchester: Place Names and Shaws of Darwen Sinks

Following on from our Entwistle Post last month, we are continuing our look at villages which give their name to our Original Collection Heavy Duty Fireclay Sinks with the iconic ribbed front Ribchester.

Ribchester is a village in Lancashire’s Ribble Valley district and lies on the banks of the River Ribble, 12 miles east of Preston and 6 miles northwest of Blackburn.

The village has a long history going as far back as the Bronze Age. It is also well known as the location of a Roman Cavalry Fort called Bremetennacum; some parts of which have been exposed by excavation. Visit the link below to find out more about the Roman Fort.

These local places of interest are integral to our heritage and vital for our workforce. So if you’re after a genuinely world class English Handmade Sink for your kitchen, look no further than Shaws of Darwen, manufacturers of the World’s finest kitchen sinks.
