Briercliffe-with-Extwistle

Is an extensive township, extending from 2 to 5 miles N.E. from Burnley, and covering an area of 4,227 acres. Robert Townley Parker, Esq., is the principal landowner, but a portion is also owned by the Halstead, Smith and Spencer families. The population of the township in 1851, was 1,612; 1861, 1,332; and in 1871, 1,263; and its rateable value is £7,440. The cotton trade gives employment to a considerable number of persons. The Church, dedicated to St. James, was erected in 1840, at a cost of £1,800, and has subsequently been beautified at a considerable expense. It contains 515 sittings, of which 300 are free. The benefice is a vicarage of the annula value of £250, in the patronage of Hulme's trustees, and held by the Rev. Robert Daniel Horace Gray, M.A. There are two schools in connection with the church, one of which was built in 1855, at a cost of £800, on a site presented by the Duke of Buccleuch. The Baptists have a chapel in the township, built in 1865, at a cost of £2,000; it has superseded the older one erected in 1840; Rev. Isaac Lloyd, minister. The [i[Free Gospellers[/i] also have a chapel here. (Letters via Burnley)
