@MarketingLancs Ok Blackburn summons up images of dark satanic mills in deepest Lancashire, but actually it has some interesting architecture and a lovely cathedral and an interesting flight of locks. They also have a section of methods for opening the gates as bridges have been built near locks so there is no space for balance beams. The picture below show a guest working one such lock.
Then as we move through the suburbs of Blackburn we get to nose at peoples back gardens, always fun.
Then it is off into the glorious countryside around Riley Green, Lancashire really is a spectacular and scenic county that does not get all the attention it deserves.
Some more pictures of that tomorrow.
