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 NEW Upcoming Events to raise awareness of the collection and our project.

Alongside many of the images, you will find the story behind it.

This is an ongoing project, please check back often.
