Many thanks Irene.
I went searching on Yahoo and came up with the following
REEDLEY HALLOWS, FILLY CLOSE AND NEW LAUND BOOTH
Redlaihalghes, 1342; Redelegh-hallous, 1459; Redhalowes, 1507.
Filicloos, 1324; Filieclose, 1423.
These three portions of the forest of Pendle were considered as
extra-parochial, i.e. they remained attached to the Castle parish of
Clitheroe after other chapelries had been carved out of it, though they were
8 miles away.
In another reference all three areas are quoted as the Administrative Unit.
So I think I will put the largest in as the Civil Parish and the other two
Incidentally the site below is very useful.
