Town in central Lancashire, in the United Kingdom. The town proclaims itself to be "Lancashire's Biggest Little Market Town." The town was made famous by repeated references to it by comedian Peter Kay in his stand up shows and his TV programmes "That Peter Kay Thing," "Phoenix Nights" and "Max & Paddy's Road to Nowhere."
The radio station mentioned in the shows, Chorley FM, is fictional and does not exist. However, there have been temporary licenses in the area broadcasting under the name following the programme's success.
Chorley is also famous for its Chorley Cakes, far superior to the nearby Eccles cakes.
