The town of Chorley is one of the most fascinating locations in all of England to say nothing of the county of Lancashire. Few cities have managed to stay at the forefront of the pulse of the nation the way that Chorley has over the years. Though it is very old Chorley has always kept its name at the tip of the public's tongue no matter what state the nation was in at the time. During the Bronze Age, when England was little more than another part of the wide reach of Rome, Chorley was already a full-fledged settlement and relics from over thirty five hundred years ago have been unearthed in the soil of the town. In the 1400's the town received international acclaim when the remains of Saint Lawrence were brought to Chorley and interred at the parish church. During the 1600's King James was eating a nice steak meal at Hoghton Tower in Chorley and he performed the very curious practice of knighting his delicious cut of meat. Ever since then the particular cut has been referred to by the now common name "Sir Loin". As such, Salisbury steak has nothing on the sirloin in more ways than one.

Though Chorley was well known and popular throughout its life, nothing could prepare the citizens of the town for the event that arguably shaped the world more than any event before or since: The Industrial Revolution. Chorley was a market town before the revolution like many of its neighbours but with the changing times Chorley found itself taking on an appearance the likes of which nobody had forecasted. Cotton became the trade du jour for Chorley and by the middle 1800's there were countless cotton mills that towered up into the sky. It was said that a visitor to the town could see it long before they were within the limits because of the many tall buildings that were dedicated to creating the massive supply of cotton demanded by the rest of the country. These days only three cotton mills remain and they are an indispensable part of history for anybody curious about the state of the country during these tumultuous yet revolutionary times.

These days Chorley bases most of its economy on light industry and service and as such it has a very remarkable population that is divided between rural people and upper class citizens. The town is thus very popular during public opinion polls and surveys regarding elections because of the wide swath of backgrounds found in the town. Though Chorley has been around for thousands of years, it is still an indispensable part of the nation and, if the trend continues, it looks like it will always hold an important place in the hearts and minds of the United Kingdom. Chorley has seen England through two World Wars and several depressions and yet it still manages to capture the imaginations of citizens throughout the country. This is the nature of Chorley and an attribute that one can hardly imagine topping.
