Cobbled streets in a town centre is quite unusual, I've not seen many in other towns and cities... I just try and avoid it in the car!

You sound like you have prior experience... have you been to Burnley?
Sadly not Chris.
Used to drive up to Tommy Ball's warehouse in Blackburn years ago.
Been to Skipton and also cycled all around the Forest of Bowland, based in Chipping.
I wonder why I've been all around it.... :whistling: ;)

Tommy Ball's... now there's a blast from the past! The building is still there but it's been a massive pet shop for about the last 15 years!

You're not missing much by avoiding Burnley town (something I can't avoid as my kitchen looks out over it), but the surrounding area is beautiful... Burnley borough is 8/10ths countryside and we border Yorkshire on one side (although not directly to Skipton) and Ribble Valley on the other (where Forest of Bowland and Chipping are).

Yes Chris, you're ideally placed, with lots of countryside around.
When we lived in Cheshire, it was 90 minutes to the Lakes, the Dales or Snowdonia.
Down here it takes a day to get out of Wales. ;)

The main square in the historic centre of Chur, Switzerland. Chur is the oldest town in Europe north of the Alps.

A 28 picture panorama of the old Post Office building in Burnley town centre, it was only so many shots because the widest lens I had with me was the P25 f1.7 + the street is pretty narrow and the building quite tall. The post office moved a few years ago and it changed use to a restaurant, and more recently a wine bar. The wine bar only opened in July this year and is now temporarily shut due to COVID-19 restrictions implemented this week.
