History Society Outing – Haslingden

Date(s) - 13/05/2017
2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Dog Inn at Belthorn


We’ll be venturing out for the first time of the year to follow the Haslingden Local History Society’s “Town Centre Trail”. Although sadly as with many industrial towns of the North West, some of old Haslingden has been levelled, much of historical interest remains. We’ll be looking at the buildings, the people, the industry….. who can resist the Power-loom riots of 1836 (featuring one William Almond of Belthorn)? To get a taste of Haslingden’s history, have a look at the amazing http://haslingden.blogspot.co.uk website. Meet at the Dog Inn at 2pm (so we have have a look around the shops afterwards.)
