Why Move to Burnley?
An old mill town full of natural beauty, Burnley is located on the fringe of Pendle Hill which boasts fabulous far-reaching views and many historical, beautiful buildings, such as Towneley Hall with its acres of surrounding parkland.
The town began to develop in the early medieval and has held market status for more than 700 years. During the Industrial Revolution it became one of Lancashire’s most prominent mill towns; at its peak it was one of the world’s largest producers of cotton cloth, and a major centre of engineering.
A huge bonus, buying a home here means you will have access to good transport links by road or rail to Manchester and Leeds as well as other larger towns across Lancashire.
Additionally, there are four international airports within an hour’s travel of the town: Manchester Airport at 31 miles, Liverpool John Lennon Airport at 41 miles, Leeds Bradford Airport at 24 miles and Blackpool Airport at 33 miles.
Burnley has some interesting places to explore. The Weavers’ Triangle is of significant historical interest as its cotton mills and associated buildings encapsulate the social and economic development of the town and its weaving industry.
From the 1980s, the area has been the focus of major redevelopment efforts at a cost of £60 million.
As you would expect from a busy high street, there are a range of retail opportunities including the attractively landscaped Charter Walk Shopping Centre with its glass covered walkways and atriums.
Here you will find the best names in High Street shopping as well as the popular Market Hall and outdoor market. When you are ready for a rest, there are lots of little cafes and restaurants to choose from.
Living in Burnley has the added attraction of being close to plenty of wonderful open green spaces which makes for a host of outdoor leisure opportunities.
Just to the north of the town is the Forest of Bowland and the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
With the large cities of Manchester and Leeds in such close proximity, a quick weekend away is easily doable.
Burnley Schools & Education
As befits a large town, Burney is able to offer residents with a range of schooling options. There are approximately 30 primary schools all of which feed into six secondary schools.
Well regarded primaries are Burnley Stoneyholme Community Primary and Holly Grove School, both highly rated by Ofsted, whilst Burnley High School and Colne Primet Academy also come highly recommended.
Alternatively, Burnley does have a small selection of independents or private schools such as St Joseph’s Park Hill School (RC Preparatory) and Moorlands View School.
Further education is covered by several colleges; Burnley College has its heritage in the mid- 19th century and is the borough’s main tertiary education (post 16) provider, offering a comprehensive range of A Levels, advanced vocational courses, and professional training opportunities.
The University of Central Lancashire has a campus in Burnley. A popular choice, it was established in 2010 to serve the higher education needs of Pennine Lancashire. UCLan is in the top 3.7% of universities worldwide according to The Centre for World University Rankings 2016 (CWUR).
Things to do in Burnley
During your free time, the opportunities for leisure are endless.
Head outdoors to go hiking, cycling, horse riding or enjoy a round of golf. Or take to the water on Thompson Park’s boating lake, where you can go sailing, kayaking, or windsurfing.
Historic Towneley Park, once the deer park for the 15th century Towneley Hall, is the perfect spot for a quiet picnic or you can sit back and enjoy one of the many live music performances held here during the summer months.
Burnley’s historic canal side, on the banks of the Leeds Liverpool canal, has been regenerated with funds from The Princes Trust. You can now explore the area and can still find many buildings from the days when the town led the world in the production of cotton.
Football fanatics can experience the thrills of live Premier League action at Burnley FC’s Turf Moor stadium.

The cost of housing is also achievable. Average house property values currently hover at just over £127,445, a considerable saving compared to Lancashire overall.
The local housing stock is varied. Remnants of its industrial past is evident with property ranging from converted mills and weaving sheds to intact workers’ cottages.
Equally however, there has been a huge number of new developments which also gives residents a chance to own a brand-new contemporary style property.
Right in the centre of Burnley you’ll find many examples of Victorian stone terraces, as well as flats above shops. Rose Hill is a particularly desirable spot as it offers residents hand access to Burnley Manchester Road station.
If you have a tight budget, the villages of Hapton, Padiham and Worsthorne are all neighbourhoods well worth looking at. They sit a little further outside of town, but homes here are even more reasonably priced.
