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: In line with Government directions volunteers are unable to access our archive rooms to digitise Burnley Express negatives for the website. However, we are continuing to add interesting images from our Newspaper Cuttings Envelopes which are being catalogued by some volunteers at home. These records date from the 1930's to the mid 1950's. Some of these will also be developed as longer stories on our Articles page.
