Chorley and District Building Society is the oldest building Society in Lancashire. It became established on 7 March 1859 and was originally called The Chorley Permanent Benefit Building Society. It was created to help mill workers buy their homes. In those early days the Society only met once a month, when the subscriptions were collected. The Society became incorporated under the Building Society's Act on 6 August 1874. The original name was then changed to The Chorley (£60 Shares) Permanent Benefit Building Society on 17 February 1897.
