Darwen Town Trail Page One

The trail covered in these photos covers the same area and follows a similar route to the one which you will find in the leaflet ‘Darwen Town Centre Heritage Trail 1’ available from the Visit Blackburn website.  On the original trail Purple Plaques were fixed to the features outlined and some of these will be seen as you follow the route outlined below.  Since the original trail was produced there have been many changes, not least of which is the renovation of the Market Square and this is where the new trail begins. 

More photographs and further information can be found on visiting the Darwen Heritage Centre at the end of the Trail.  The first photograph shows the original outline map and is only there for general street directions.

There is also a Darwen Town Centre Local History Walk leaflet which was created as a Heritage Week Walk available from the Darwen Heritage Centre.
