A modern aerial view of Bamber Bridge. The bridge that gives it's name to the village can be found at the bottom of the picture where the River Lostock is crossed by Station Road. 


The River Lostock is fed from springs outside Brindle then heads through Withnell Fold, Wheelton, Lower Copthurst, Whittle le Woods, Clayton le Woods and Cuerden until it gets to Bamber Bridge. Here it is the boundary between South Ribble and Chorley for a distance until it enters Farington, Leyland, Ulnes Walton and Bretherton finally flowing into the River Yarrow outside Croston.
