Home to the popular Burnley Canal Festival, the town of Burnley in Lancashire has retained the architecture of its industrial heritage. With 12 factory chimney stacks still standing and its canal banks dotted with characterful buildings, Burnley’s rolling hills are the epitome of mill town landscapes. Ten miles from Blackburn, connected by the Leeds to Liverpool Canal, the two towns are a lovely twin destinations, nestled within the beauty of the Pennine hills.
