Here’s our top ten reasons for buyers to consider a move to Mitton Grange in the historic village of Whalley.

Mitton Grange is a development of 46 three and four-bedroom homes and our homes tick off all the boxes on the ‘must have’ list for those who want to move.

Sam Williams, head of sales at Prospect Homes said: “Since launching sales for this development, many of our visitors have said the reason behind their new home search has been wanting a home that better suits their lifestyles. Desire to live near green, open space is a huge driver too so we are expecting this development to be one of our most successful sites because it has it all.”

Here are some of the reasons why you should choose a new home at Mitton Grange:

A rural lifestyle

The benefits of living near green, open space on mental health is widely spoken about and Mitton Grange is surrounded by it*. Situated on the banks of the river Calder there are numerous walking routes to be taken from the village itself but the circular walk from the village to Whalley Nab and the Spring Wood Nature Reserve is a popular one.

Local amenities

Despite offering a rural lifestyle, the village of Whalley is well-placed for access to essential amenities. It has a medical centre, pharmacy, co-op, post office, and library.  There is a larger Sainsbury’s in Clitheroe which is 10 minutes’ drive away.


And when a night off cooking at home is needed, Whalley is perfectly placed to have a number of pub and restaurant options on the doorstep. The Aspinall Arms sits on the banks of the river Calder and is just one mile away from Mitton Grange. It offers classic British dishes as well as some exotic influences. There is also the Breda Murphy restaurant that offers modern British and Irish cuisines plus the chance to take home some of Brenda’s award-winning food thanks to her frozen meals.


In the village of Whalley, there is Whalley C of E Primary School. In the next village along, Billington, there is Langho and Billington St Leonard’s Primary School and to the north of Whalley is Barrow URC Primary School.

For high schools, Billington is home to St Augustine’s and Ribblesdale High School is in Clitheroe.


Whalley Train Station has direct trains to Manchester Victoria that take just over an hour and Clitheroe can be reached in less than 10 minutes. It is also located just off the A59 meaning residents can reach Preston in 40 minutes and Blackburn in 20 minutes.

Energy efficient new builds

New build home buyers are saving over £500 million** a year in energy bills compared to owners of older properties. This equates to saving homeowners, on average, £2600 a year.

New house styles

Mitton Grange is the first development where we are showcasing our new house styles. The new designs include elements such as bay windows and they have been designed to achieve accessible and adaptable living meaning they incorporate features that make it suitable for a wide range of occupants, including older people, those with reduced mobility and some wheelchair users. This has been done by allowing larger space within bedrooms, downstairs cloakrooms and kitchens.

A helping hand to move

Customers who have an existing home to sell can use our Easy Move scheme. This hassle-free process means we will work with a trusted estate agent to arrange a valuation, photography and once everyone is happy, your existing home will be marketed for sale. Once the house is sold, you can then move forward with reserving your Prospect home. We will also cover estate agent fees up to £3000 once a buyer is found.

Your home is protected

A new build home is covered by a two-year Builder warranty in which Prospect Homes is responsible for any issues that arise. The home is also covered by a 10-year NHBC warranty. To find out more about this protection, visit: www.nhbc.co.uk

Building homes for good

When customers buy a Prospect home, all profits from the sale are reinvested into social value initiatives and communities across the UK. This is because our parent company, Riverside Group, is one of the UK’s leading not-for-profit social housing and regeneration organisations and they have been transforming lives and revitalising neighbourhoods for over 100 years.

Mitton Grange is currently being sold from Atherton’s estate agents in Whalley until a sales centre and show homes open on site in the springtime. To find out more about buying a home at Mitton Grange please email: [email protected] or call 01254 375 675.
