Burnley, Lancashire, England
A panoramic image showing the former mill town of Burnley in Lancashire, England. To the far top left of the image is the imposing Pendle Hill, with the Yorkshire Dales visible in the top central background. The left of the image shows the town centre and Turf Moor, home of Burnley Football Club, can be seen in the centre of the picture. To the right the areas of Brunshaw and Pike Hill can be seen. All of the town's 11–18 education facilities have recently been replaced and two of the construction sites can be seen, one behind the football stadium and the other in the foreground to the right of the image.Photo: Childzy


Different population data for 2001[edit]

The section on demography shows two different numbers for population in 2001 - one in the table to the right, a different one in the text and the table below. Which is right? Also the link to the table below does not work. --Cafe1819 (talk) 14:48, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

As far as I know they are both correct. The table at the bottom is the population of the town of Burnley, where as the one on the left is for the borough. As the new 2011 census data is currently being released, I'm not gonna do anything about it just yet. --Trappedinburnley (talk) 19:27, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Burnley is called Burnley[edit]

See also[edit]

Why does the "See also" section include List of mining disasters in Lancashire, when Burnley is mentioned only twice - once for Town House Colliery (which was, in fact, at Great Marsden) and once for Hapton Valley Colliery which currently had no article? If Burnley was directly affected by a mining disaster, shouldn't the detail just be included in this article? Thanks. Martinevans123 (talk) 21:06, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

Hapton Valley Colliery, a mile from the town centre had a disaster in 1962. It's not my fault it isn't mentioned in the article or that there are no articles on either the pit or the Burnley coalfield. But the link is useful, these things can be added. J3Mrs (talk) 21:11, 2 January 2018 (UTC)
I'm not saying it's anyone's "fault". I'm just saying that any reader who goes to List of mining disasters in Lancashire to find more information related to Burnley will be sadly disappointed. If the 1962 disaster is relevant, as it was only a mile away, I'm sure it could be usefully added to this article. Martinevans123 (talk) 21:17, 2 January 2018 (UTC)
The idea is that readers can visit the disasters article after reading this one. J3Mrs (talk) 14:31, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
How lovely. Martinevans123 (talk) 17:39, 7 January 2018 (UTC)

I think this is a nice article that deserves as wide an audience as possible, I'm going to link to it in the Lancashire articles also. I do see Martin's point that there isn't much directly related to Burnley. I've read some of Nadin's 'Coal Mines of East-Lancashire' and I remember that deaths on a smaller scale seemed fairly commonplace. I will see if I can borrow a copy for a while. I'm happy to make a few coal mine articles, [1] this seems a good source, but what makes a colliery notable? Trappedinburnley (talk) 12:14, 6 January 2018 (UTC)

I've struggled writing it and it needs some more work but it's such a depressing subject and there were more many more miners killed in individual accidents than major disasters. I think most collieries are notable if refs can be found. Certainly Hapton Valley, Bank Hall and those that survived to nationalisation are worthy. I've written a few colliery articles but info isn't always easy to come by. The best is Bradford Colliery that I wrote with Eric. An article on the Burnley Coalfield could be a good place to mention those that don't have enough info for individual articles. I've linked it to all the places mentioned, I think. Jack Nadin is definitely the go to source for the Burnley area. I'll contribute where I can, I might even start some if I can get a book. J3Mrs (talk) 14:31, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
