Towneley Hall has been delving into its archives to put together a brand new exhibition showcasing Burnley’s past and present.

It’s Not Negative exhibition, which opened on Tuesday, 31st October, gives visitors a rare opportunity to see images reproduced from glass negatives, dating from the 1880 period until the 1930s.

The pictures feature scenes of Burnley streets, local families, playing children, transport, public events and parks.

Arrangements have been made for the annual service of remembrance to be held at the Peace Garden, Croft Street, Burnley, on Sunday, 12th November.

The service will start shortly before 11am and will be conducted by the Bishop of Burnley, Reverend Philip North CMP, Father Roger Parker, Chaplain to the Royal British Legion, and Father Peter Hopkinson of St Mary’s of Assumption.

Members of the public attending are asked to be at the Peace Garden no later than 10.45am.

Our condolences go to the family of the former Mayor of Burnley, Ken Butterworth, who has sadly passed away at his home in Great Yarmouth.

Mr Butterworth served as Mayor in 1984/85. 

 

Work has started on restoring Burnley park gardens to their former glory as part of the £1.2 million Heritage Lottery Funded project.
  
The work on Thompson Park Italian gardens includes repairing and conservation of the shelters and walling, and replanting the flower beds with colourful herbaceous perennials.  
 
The pergolas and Doric columns, which were blown down in 2011 and have been kept in storage, will also be restored and installed in the garden.
