Blackburn and Darwen have industry, inventiveness, skill and hard work as part of their DNA. This is a place with globally respected businesses and brands. Blackburn was one of the first industrialised towns in the world and with its innovation, creativity and manufacturing roots forging the industrial revolution it was the original Northern Powerhouse. Now it is galvanising one of the youngest populations in Europe and 15,000 students in one of England’s most successful colleges to play a leading part in driving its future in the knowledge economy.
Fantastically situated on the edge of Lancashire’s beautiful Ribble Valley with its Michelin star restaurant and gastro pubs, only 20 miles from Manchester, next to the M65 and with a renewed multi-million-pound town centre Blackburn is a great value place to grow your life.
