From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Bishop of Whalley was an episcopal title used by a Church of England suffragan bishop, which took its name after the large village Whalley in Lancashire.[1][2]

The suffragan bishop was originally under the jurisdiction of the Diocese of Manchester, but with the creation of the Diocese of Blackburn in 1926, the suffragan bishop and the Whalley area became part of the new diocese. Since 1936, the title has been in abeyance.[1]
