The Western Parishes area is made up of the villages of Hutton, Longton, Much Hoole, New Longton, Walmer Bridge and Whitestake.
Although largely rural in nature, these villages have thriving communities which are supported by the Parish Councils of Hutton, Little Hoole, Much Hoole and Longton. There is also a rich network of local community groups, sports and social clubs and voluntary organisations that cater for and support people young and old. These include New Longton Cricket Club, four different bowls clubs, a number of Scouts Groups and several branches of the Women's Institute.
The area is served by one high school (Hutton C of E Grammar) and six primary schools; Longton, St Oswald's, All Saints, St Michael, Little Goole and Ashbridge Independent. It has seven churches of varying denominations, a library in Longton, and village halls in Hutton, Hoole, New Longton and Walmer Bridge.
Longton Brickcroft Nature Reserve and Longton Marsh form part of the Ribble Way and attract visitors from far and wide.
