For hundreds of years this town was a centre of trade for the surrounding Pendleside villages and a meeting place for the inhabitants of this rough hewn landscape.

Whether you use the original Anglo Saxon word of Padyngham, Padiheigham or the more common Padiham, local, independent traders have always had a home here.
