A Pendle village butchers shop is celebrating its 40th anniversary.
David Ingham and Sons, of Skipton Road, Foulridge, first opened in November, 1973.
And it has served the needs of customers from the village and from Colne and West Craven – and indeed from further afield, some from as far as Giggleswick – ever since.
David first began in the butchery business in Nelson, but moved away from it for a time before returning and establishing the shop in Foulridge.
Originally a one-man operation, the business has blossomed to such a degree that David now has six full-time staff.
He said: “We are dealing with different generations and how we cut meat. We have started making our own pies and have tried to maintain the traditions of a family butchers business. We have been in business in for 40 years – and hope to keep going for the next 40!”
