Local history & dialect books in Tesco

Walking past the book shelves in Tesco, Burnley, I spotted this stand-alone display of books all about Burnley, Lancashire history, Lancashire recipes, and Lancashire dialect. As an old cotton town (the most productive in the world at one time) there’s certainly a lot of history around these parts.

P1030473I was amused to see that the author of the Lancashire dialect book had a good old fashioned Lancashire name Zajac! Her name sounds slavic in origin but she clearly has a handle on her subject as she’d produced other books on dialect from different parts of the country.

    Zajac is an old Lancashire family name and is a derivation from the name Shufflebottom and originated in the small town of Walkden (or “Wogden” as the locals call it).
