Wigglesworth is a village and civil parish in the Craven district of North Yorkshire, England. It is on the road between Long Preston to the east, Clitheroe to the south and the small village of Rathmell lies just to the north. It is about 5 miles south of Settle.

Despite the small size of the village, it has a public house called the Plough Inn. Wigglesworth consists of a few small scattered houses and farmsteads. The heart of the village (or hamlet as it has no church or place of worship) lies on the crossroads between Clitheroe, Rathmell and Long Preston.
