In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Goldshaw Booth like this:
GOLDSHAW BOOTH, a township in Newchurch-in-Pendle chapelry, Whalley parish, Lancashire; 3 miles NW of Marsden r. station, and 6 NW of Burnley. Acres, 980. Real property, £2, 473. Pop. in 1851, 620; in 1861, 406. Houses, 80. The decrease of pop. was occasioned by the removal of handloom weavers. There is a Wesleyan chapel.
