Darwen History

Darwen Lancashire

Are you a local Historian?

We are looking for people to help build up this section of the site on the history of the town and visitor attractions. We want this also to be a section where local schools can use as a resource for teaching children about the area where they live and for expats as well as current locals to look back on.

Things we would like to include here are:

  • The origins of the town and where it all started
  • A gallery of old pictures of the town for all to see and use
  • Well known people and prominent figures from the town
  • Significant events in the town i.e. royal visits etc.
  • Historical & building areas of interest
  • Before and Now places
  • School Reunion - a place to post about schools in the town and meet old friends
  • Where are they now, people who may have left and well known buildings or businesses that used to be in town
  • Anything else of interest


If you feel you can contribute to this section, we would love to hear from you, maybe you already have a Facebook group about some of the same and we can sync the two together.
