The village has won many awards for it’s beauty over the years and buildings of significance include: the Church of St Bartholomew which is a a Grade II listed building and Chipping Craft Centre which holds the record for a building in the UK that has been used as a shop for the longest continuous time.

Chipping is surrounded by some of the most well-known landmarks in Lancashire’s countryside, to the north lie the hills of Parlick Pike and Fair Snape Fell; to the south is Jeffrey Hill and Longridge Fell; to the west is Beacon Fell and The River Hodder runs to the east of the village.

While walkers visit the village all year round, the summer brings crowds of people from all over the county for the Chipping Steam Fair and the Chipping Agricultural Show.
