The Preston Guardian

Saturday 5 October 1850

To the Editor of the Preston Chronicle.
Sir,—By means of your extensively circulated paper, I beg to call the particular attention of the Burnley Improvement Commissioners to the disgraceful state of the middensteads situated in the most public part of Roper-street, Park, Burnley, and right in front of a much frequented public-house,—the "Britannia Inn."
If the owners could be prevailed on to remove those nuisances to more private situations, or, at all events, to clear away the rubbish and filth in front of and close to them, the inhabitants of that neighbourhood (which was formerly remarkable for its cleanly state) would feel parlicularly obliged. Besides, the health of persons residing in the vicinity would not be so much endangered in times of epidemic, or seasons of cholera especially, were this suggestion carried out.
Your insertion of this will much oblige,
Yours respectfully,
Several of the Inhabitants of the Said Locality.
Burnley Oct. 1st, 1850.
