Burnley is situated in a gentle valley at the foot of the Pennines, the district is dominated in the north by Pendle Hill. A few miles to the east we have the Yorkshire Dales and the Bronte country, whereas to the west and north west we are close to the Trough of Bowland, Pendle (the latter two, also areas of outstanding national beauty, but with fewer tourists than the Dales or Bronte country) and also the Lancashire coastal resorts.
A major cotton weaving town at the last turn of the century, Burnley's vacant mills have now been taken over by new industry, recently, especially in the electronics and computer fields.
