Historical Burnley - Images and video collection

Following on from my previous post about the dwindling population in Burnley I thought a few images and 'videos' of Burnley 'past and present' would be nice. So here's what I've managed to collect and put em all on one PAGE for your perusal.

 Video (above): The Burnley Express's Kelvin Stuttard has been out and about around the town centre, filming our town for posterity ... and seeing how the landscape has changed since 1988 when our archive footage was taken.

The soundtrack "Never Leave Home" has been provided by Burnley band Ring Ring Rouge - it's the lead track off their soon-to-be released EP The Red Telephone (Jack to Phono Records).

The extended version (Above) of 'Life in a northern town' by The Dream Academy with photos of the town of Burnley.
