Elite Balustrade Systems Ltd move to their new home to the village of Whalley in the heart of Lancashire beautiful Ribble Valley.

We are pleased to announce that Elite Balustrade Systems have successfully moved to a brand new home just outside the village of Whalley based in the heart of rural Lancashire’s Ribble Valley. With a new showroom, offices and manufacturing space, the brand new building at Unit 23 Mitton Road Business Park is a perfect location for the business. Showcasing our Elite Outdoor Living range of innovative decking solutions and our bespoke range of frameless glass balustrade systems.


Whalley is a lively community, with a colourful rich historical history. Thought to be orginally a Roman outpost for the local Roman town Ribchester, Whalley built a church on the location of the outpost in the Eighth Century known as the White Church, followed by a Norman Church in the 1100’s. This was a major area of importance which covered an area of 45 townships that now includes parts Blackburn, Clitheroe, Haslingden, Accrington and Colne. In 1296 the Cistercian monks of Stanlow Abbey in Cheshire founded and built Whalley Abbey, the second largest monastic institution in the country. During the dissolution of the monasteries by Henry VIII, the Abbott Paslew was hung, drawn and quartered. The abbey can still be seen today but as ruins alongside the River Calder and the Abbey Conference Centre & Retreat.

The business is just located up the road from the village’s railway station which has direct links to Manchester. The arrival of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway to Whalley in the 1900’s led to a revival of the area with increased prosperity and people to the area. The famous viaduct is a 48 arch span railway bridge crossing over the River Calder and a major landmark in the area.

The brand of Elite Balustrade has a history on the site of the former railway sidings in Whalley over 10 years ago, when the a former business developed the brand before it’s move to Blackburn in 2015. Earlier this year in 2019 Elite Balustrade Systems Ltd. was formed bringing the brands of Elite Balustrade and Elite Outdoor Living under the new business ownership along with plans to move to its spiritual home of Whalley.
