Canal renovation opens up new vista on old Lancashire town

The Leeds ad Liverpool canal was closed and dredged a couple of years ago in this part of Burnley and the embankment rebuilt.

At the top of it there is a now a fish and chip restaurant and from its car park you can see views of Burnley, Lancashire, previously obscured by the shells of old mill buildings.

In the first photograph you can see the open air stadium built for concerts etc The canal is out of view just to the left.

In the second photograph you can see a jumble of buildings from Burnley’s industrial past interspersed with some more recent and more colourful buildings. You can also just see the canal towpath at the bottom of the picture.

The photographs were taken by my enthusiastic 4-year old grandson who grabs my camera whenever he gets the chance.
