Burnley Map

The market town of Burnley in Lancashire sits snugly in a valley at the confluence of the Calder and Brun Rivers, surrounded by rugged South Pennine countryside. Discover picturesque moorlands, woodlands, waterways and stone farms as you walk, ride or cycle the 40-mile Burnley Way. Alternatively, head to dramatic Cliviger Gorge, carved into the landscape by glacial meltwaters at the end of the last ice-age. Take your binoculars to spot wildlife that includes peregrine falcon, raven and deer. Discover Burnley’s cloth-making past at Queen Street Mill Textile Museum, the only remaining steam powered weaving mill in the world. Then see how the workers lived at the preserved Victorian Weaver’s Triangle. Bargain hunters will be in seventh heaven in Burnley. Burnley Market has been going for more than 700 years and its 200-odd stalls sell everything from food and clothes to flowers and crafts. Or head to one of the mill shops from 30,000sq ft Barden Mill on the banks of the Leeds to Liverpool Canal to Sherry’s Lancashire Mill Shop which is great for bed linens, towels and curtains. With an abundance of attractions, events and things to do in Burnley you can fill your day with sightseeing, shopping or time spent in the great outdoors.
