Overview

'Like many towns in North East Lancashire, Accrington owed much of its growth and prosperity to the development of the textile industry - a fact reflected both in its architecture and design. Accrington's greatest development took place during the 19th century, growing rapidly from a small village of 3,000 people in 1801 to 10,000 by the middle of the century and reaching its peak in 1911 when it was an industrial town with 45,000 inhabitants.' ALERT Website Link changed from that orginally referenced.

Overview

'Huncoat is a small village near Accrington situated on the slopes of the Pennine hills below the 1,340 feet high Great Hameldon. The place name was recorded in the 11th Century Domesday Book when Lancashire was still largely covered by peatmoss and woodland. In medieval times Huncoat was the cross-roads for two packhorse trade routes and expanded in the 19th Century with the Industrial Revolution. Between the two world wars the corridor alongside the railway line was heavily industrialised with collieries, coke works and brick yards ...'

Overview

'Originally conceived ... in 1985 to mark the 50th Anniversary of the Ramblers Association. In it's original state it was a one day challenge walk over a 50km route. Ten members of the Group completed the inaugural walk in one day and were the first recipients of the original badge and certificate. It is, however, worth noting that the Hyndburn Group has also done the walk over both two and three days on various occasions.' ALERT Details of this Walk no longer seem accessible via the Hyndburn Ramblers Website. So I have replaced the Link with one to GPS Cycle and Walking Routes. However, note also the Link to the Prospects site below.
