Found Dead In A field

Robert Duerden, of High-sim, in the township of Briercliffe, was found dead in a field near to the Cold Well public-house, Briercliffe, on Sunday afternoon last. The deceased had been to the Cold Well public-house with Hartley Stuttard, and they had been there until half-past two o'clock in the afternoon, when they went away towards home, but the deceased lingered behind, and was left by Stuttard. The deceased was seen standing alone in the field, and afterwards near to the same place he was found laid down quite dead. He was 54 years of age, and an inquest was held. Verdict accordingly.

That's great Gill.

I'm just browsing the British Newspaper Archive lately to see if there is anything relevant. I keep finding the odd article here and there. There are a couple of stories that were in the Burnley papers in the early 1900's that I'd love to add but I think, for now, it would be a little too time consuming and I want to get the new site live soon. Just waiting for hubby to do his next bit on it.
