Venue: Meet at the Roundhouse, Grange Park
Description: There are a number of indications of the significant scale of Burley’s retail and commercial sector in days gone by – if only you know where to look for them! With 9 butchers, 4 fish and chip shops, banks and a mini-department store, Burley had plenty of places for mill employees to spend their hard-earned brass. This 1.5 miles leisurely walk will reveal some of the history behind the buildings and green spaces now lining Main Street, Station Road and Peel Place. We aim to finish by 12.15 by taking refreshments at one of Burley’s latest businesses! No dogs, please.
Cost: Free – bring money for refreshments.
Booking: Required – limit on numbers (20)
