Pictures of Blackburn
Blackburn is the largest town in East Lancashire and is notable for its large shopping malls, celebrated three day market, Thwaites Brewery (one of the biggest independant brewers of real ale in the North-East of England which celebrates its 200th anniversary in 2007) and its modern Cathedral. Once the largest weaving town in the world Blackburn was visited by Mahatma Gandhi when he toured the area to study Lancashire's textile Industry. Blackburn was mentioned in the Doomsday Book and was originally an agricultural community before producing wool and then cotton cloth. St Mary's Church which was built in 1826, although there has been a church on the same site since 597AD, became a cathedral in 1926.
