Hi Kris, I have looked in our A-Z and there isn't one in Burnley at the present time. When were you looking for? I would have thought it was a common name years ago.
How are you enjoying being back in Canada??

Thanks, Gloria and Stephanie.

Mill Lane is the address on two carte de visite photographs I have from the late 1860’s or early 1870’s. Unfortunatley these CDV’s give no other information.

Things are ok in Canada. I do enjoy the outdoor activities and the fresh air, but I also miss London.

I know that this is an old posting but the subject was left a little in mid air.

Mill Street was in Habergham Eaves, and was the section of road in front of the Dougdale Brothers Lowerhouse Mills. ie: between the current Lowerhouse Canteen Club and Scott St. This section is now part of Lowerhouse Lane.

Mill Lane was in Burnley centre and was a continuation of Bridge St towards the junction of Parker St> North Parade> Bank St. Mill lane can be seen on the 1851 maps. It is also mentioned by Bennett and T Wilkinson.

Although I have seen several pictures of Mill St. I have never seen one of Mill Lane. Perhaps you have got something that is a little out of the ordinary.

Regards Plaques.
