The town of Accrington in Lancashire is situated four miles east of Blackburn and six miles west of Burnley. It has an unusual claim to fame in that it is where the hardest and densest bricks in the world originate from. They were used for the building of the Empire State Building. They were also chosen for the foundations of Blackpool Tower. Football supporters will associate the town with Accrington Stanley FC, known as the football club that wouldn’t die.
Having been allocated £10-million, the local council have gone about turning Accrington into the best shopping venue in East Lancashire. As well as many great independent boutiques, the town is also home to the Arndale Shopping Centre which sits comfortably with Victoria Market Hall, a 19th-century building that houses an indoor market where traders offer locally grown and reared Lancashire products for sale.
As a reminder of Accrington’s economic heritage, when it was a major centre for the manufacture of cotton and textile machinery, visitors to Accrington should pay a visit to Oswaldtwistle Mills. It is an award-winning shopping village, housed in five former textile mill buildings that contain over 100 retailers, as well as being a textile and heritage museum with extensive grounds which also incorporate a Wildfowl Reserve.
In terms of arts and crafts, Accrington also has the Haworth Art Gallery – a gallery that holds the biggest collection of Tiffany Glass in Europe.

Slips, trips and falls in Accrington
Something like 5% of the victims of slip, trips and falls in Accrington sustain bone fractures. The most common ones are fractures of the wrist. This is because people try to lessen the impact of the fall by sticking their arms out. It’s a natural reaction, but if the fall is a nasty one, you can easily break your wrist – especially if you fall from height.
Broken pelvises are another common fracture, especially if the fall victim is elderly and suffers from osteoporosis, the infamous brittle bone disease.
If someone else was to blame for your accident – a local authority responsible for a raised paving stones, or a store responsible for not cordoning off a wet floor area; you can sue them for financial compensation. Accident Advice Helpline can assist you with doing just that.
