About I W Critchley and Son

I W Critchley and Son are a traditional, family-run milk delivery business. We pride ourselves on high levels of service and top quality products. We also have many years of experience in the dairy and milk delivery business.

Ignatius Critchley started delivering as a milkman in 1965 in the Chorley area. The business is now being run by Ignatius’ son, Peter, along with Peter’s sons Richard, Rob and James. You can see short biographies of us and our milkmen here.

Modern Convenience for our Customers

These days we embrace all the modern conveniences that help us provide an efficient and helpful service to our customers. The latest development is this website and its online shopping and account management system. This enables our customers who have registered for an online account to make changes to their orders, see past deliveries, statements and make payments. You can register for an online account here.

In Our Community

We all enjoy our work as it brings us into contact with local people and gets us out and about in the open air. We all feel this is far more than just a dairy business and that we provide a service to our local community. Sometimes we provide a vital link to grocery delivery and personal contact to our elderly and remote customers. This is especially true in poor weather as we deliver when most services can’t.

We are very keen to support our local community in and around Chorley and therefore regularly supply milk for local Macmillan coffee mornings.
