In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Little Mitton like this:
Mitton, Henthorn, and Colcoats, township, Whalley par., NE. Lancashire, 2½ miles SW. of Clitheroe, adjacent to Great Mitton, 873 ac., pop. 73; contains Mitton Hall, seat.
The location is that of Little Mitton Farm, as named on the modern 1:25,000 map.
A Vision of Britain through Time includes a large library of local statistics for administrative units. For the best overall sense of how the area containing Little Mitton has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of Ribble Valley. More detailed statistical data are available under Units and statistics, which includes both administrative units covering Little Mitton and units named after it.
