Final preparations to mark canal’s 200th anniversary

Final preparations are being made in Burnley to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal.

The canal helped shape the borough and establish Burnley at the centre of the world’s cotton weaving trade. It, as much as any other historic event, helped make the town what it is today.

The Leeds and Liverpool Canal bicentenary celebrations reach a high point next week as the historic short boat Kennet re-creates the inaugural ceremonial journey 127 miles across the Pennines from Leeds to Liverpool.

Private landlords fined for failing to licence rented property

Two private landlords have been fined more than £700 for failing to properly licence a property in Burnley they rented out.

Burnley Magistrates’ Court was told that Christopher James Davies and Natalie Davies owned the house in Carter Street and had rented it out since December 2015.

The house is in Gannow, a selective licensing area where rented properties must be licensed by Burnley Council. Selective licensing has been introduced into certain areas by the council to help improve the management of private rented properties and improve the surrounding area.
