Burnley Civic Trust Heritage Image Collection
In 2016 Burnley Civic Trust was gifted the Burnley Express Newspaper Archive by Johnston Press.

The archive is extensive and we aim to make as many of these images available online as soon as possible.

We have Upcoming Events to raise awareness of the collection and our project.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE 1st APRIL EVENT AND ALL FUTURE EVENTS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED until further notice.
CORONAVIRUS UPDATE, JUNE 2020: In line with Government easing of restrictions some volunteers are now able to access our archive rooms to digitise Burnley Express negatives for the website. We are looking at ways of safely allowing more access to the rooms so that we can return to normal or near normal activity.

 

50 Years Ago

This is the current scene at the Bee Hole end of Burnley FC's Turf Moor headquarters. As previously reported in the Burnley Express, the club are carrying out extensive development and improvement work to the terracing which from next season will be able to cope with 20,000 standing spectators. The directors hope to reach a stage eventually where the Bee Hole end will be the only standing area, the other three sides being fully seated.
