Two Great Lancashire Buildings

in East Lancashire, Historic Houses, Lancashire, Northern England

Last week I mentioned some of the items on the blog that had received most attention since they were published. One of these was on Towneley Hall, Burnley, a “hidden gem” of East Lancashire.  The picture there was taken from my copy of the 1909 brochure, so I thought that today I’d put up here one of my own photos from a visit in January 2010. (And here’s a 2012 addition)

I also referred to the glorious Hodder Valley.  The emphasis there was on the Hodder river itself, but nearby there is Stoneyhurst College, just outside the village of Hurst Green. Maybe I’ll write more about both of these great Lancashire buildings in the future, but for the present here’s another photo.
