Why move to Accrington
A Lancashire town with a rich heritage, Accrington was the centre for the cotton and textile machinery industries during the industrial revolution.
Accrington manufactured the hardest and densest building bricks in the world, “The Accrington NORI” (iron). These can be found all over the world including the Empire State Building and the foundations of Blackpool Tower.
The residents of Accrington benefit from a semi-urban atmosphere where there is easy access to shops and work in the town centre. Surrounded by beautiful picturesque Pennine moorland, the town also offers quick and convenient links to the larger towns of Blackburn, Burnley and Manchester, perfect for commuters.
Accrington is home to some fabulous, independent boutiques; the 21st century Arndale Shopping Centre and 19th century Victoria Market Hall. Bargain hunters should pay a visit to nearby Oswaldtwistle Mills, housed in five former weaving sheds, which has over 80 discount outlets.
As much as £10 million in investment has already been spent on refurbishing the town centre, upgrading of roads and high streets and building new housing. Hyndburn Borough Council has further plans for the regeneration of the town, which will stretch well into future. This is great news for Accrington’s economy and for those who live and work here.
Things to do in Accrington
Although the town is situated close to the city of Manchester which offers a whole host of attractions, Accrington itself has many landmarks and attractions of its own.
Accrington is well known for having the most extensive collection of colourful Tiffany glass in Europe. Joseph Briggs, a local man from Accrington, worked as the art director for Tiffany’s and designed some of the fabulous pieces himself. The Haworth Art Gallery houses an extensive collection of the famous ‘Tiffany Glass’.
Accrington is overlooked by The Coppice, which is a large area of natural beauty and is a popular spot for dog walkers and runners. On bright days the views from the top, range all the way to Blackpool and beyond.
Join the Accrington Acorn Trail. A leisurely walk around the centre of the town takes you from the magnificent Town Hall, built-in 1858 at the height of Accrington’s textiles success, along Willow Street with its imposing houses and past Carnegie Library to the oldest part of town along Warner Street. A great way to find out more about Accrington’s history.
If you go to Accrington and don’t explore its surreal countryside, you have made a mistake. Serious walkers will revel in the 31-mile circular Hyndburn Clog, which passes through remarkably diverse landscape. This being said, you don’t have to be a serious walker as the Hyndburn Clog is broken down into seven (far more reasonable) stages!

Accrington Schools & Education
Finding a school in the town will not pose too much of a problem as there are 34 to choose from depending on exactly which neighbourhood you decide to move to.
Many primaries are reported to be “good” says Ofsted. Among some of these, are: Accrington Huncoat Primary School, Accrington Woodnook Primary School, Accrington Benjamin Hargreaves Primary and Baxenden St John’s Church of England Primary. Accrington Peel Park Primary School and St Oswald’s Roman Catholic Primary School were both rated as “outstanding”.
There are seven secondary schools in the district, and each year they compete with each other to achieve better results. This culminated in the Hollins Technology College winning an award from SSAT for fantastic progress.
The Hollins Secondary School is also within the top 3% in the country and well known for its development.
The closest college is Accrington & Rossendale College (‘Across’), an award-winning further education College which specialises in vocational education.
Nearby universities include University Centre at Blackburn College and the University of Central Lancashire in Preston.
Property Prices in Accrington
Property prices across the town are incredibly reasonable and there is plenty of choice with regards to style too. Characterful terraces, once home to mill workers, are very sought after.
The majority of these homes are situated close to the centre of town, so they offer not only attractive dwellings but also the convenience of being close to amenities. You can expect to pay in the region of £90,000 for one of these three bedroom terraced properties.
If you have a little more to spend, situated only minutes away from Accrington town centre is a magnificent period home offering a vast amount of space. Completely renovating the house, creating five double bedrooms, it is on the market for £160,000!
The average cost of a home stands at £118,155, well below the national average. This is a rise of 1.75% in the last three months (since August 2019) and growth of 2.42% in the past 12 months – Statistics based on current Zoopla estimates December 2019.
