Welcome to our photographic record of Burnley

We hope that older viewers will enjoy recalling past times and younger people will be interested in seeing parts of Burnley which have disappeared.

The captions to these photographs are from our personal recollections and we trust that they are accurate, although if any viewer can offer any correction or additional information this would be welcome.

Accrington Road

Two views of the main road into Burnley from Accrington and Blackburn.

This is Cog Lane below Accrington Road, where it dipped under the railway bridge.  The houses on the right have been demolished, as has the distictive Yatefield Mill in the background.  For a period before closure it was occupied by Brooke Bond.

A sad sight and proof of demolition; the end of Yatefield Mill.

This notable off-licence stood at the corner of Accrington Road and Cog Lane.  All the shops, the houses behind on Cog Street, and most of those fronting Accrington Road, have been demolished.
