Buckshaw Village is a relatively new residential and industrial area between the towns of Chorley and Leyland in Lancashire, the original area of Buckshaw being part of Euxton. It is one of the largest urban development sites in the North West of England. It is the largest brownfield regeneration scheme in the whole of Europe. The new development is taking place on the former site of the Royal Ordnance Factory (ROF) Chorley, and covers several square kilometres. The area of land was known as Buckshaw, before it was requisitioned by the MOD in the 1930s. There are two listed buildings in this area that the ROF had a duty of care over, the smaller Old Worden Hall, which has recently been redeveloped by the Maysand Group this was the ancestral seat of a branch of the Farrington family, who later built and moved to Worden Hall in Worden Park, Leyland as well as Buckshaw Hall which was built in the 1650s for the Robinson family. Up to 2000 new family homes are in the process of being built along with a retirement village and an eco-friendly village built in conjunction with scientists from University of Manchester."
