Reminders of earlier times

Walking across the car park on a small business park in Burnley, Lancashire, you might observe a couple of alcoves in the brickwork near the Leeds to Liverpool canal.P1030099 P1020070

The keener-eyed among you might also notice a round plaque. It describes the 18c practise of producing lime for use in the canal’s constructionP1030097

The sight was preserved by Sainsbury PLC which used to have a store on this site before relocating elsewhere in the town.
