Hyndburn is a local government district with borough status in Lancashire, England. Its council is based in Accrington. The district is named after the River Hyndburn.

It was formed in 1974 by the amalgamation of the Borough of Accrington, the Urban Districts of Church, Clayton-le-Moors, Great Harwood, Oswaldtwistle and Rishton, and part of the Burnley Rural District.

Rename

In June 2007, the council proposed changing the name of "Hyndburn", and replace it with "Accrington & Districts", to aid recognition of the borough by those not familiar with the area.
