Full Meeting of Council
Earby Town Council
Earby is a small town in the North of England. Traditionally a part of the great historic County of Yorkshire, as exemplified by the decorative white roses seen in many house windows, Earby now comprises part of the West Craven district of Lancashire. Thus the red rose is shown entwined with the white rose in, for example, the local paper.
Historically Earby when a village was little more than a scattering of farms and a few handloom weavers cottages. It was part of Pennine England with its sturdy independent Yeoman Farmers famous for their thrift and canny silence, making a precarious living mainly from sheep but also dairy cattle.
