#406 – Shadows of the North Exhibition opens at Queen Street Mill, Burnley


I am pleased to announce that my Shadows of the North exhibition has moved to Queen Street Mill Textile Museum in Burnley, the last steam powered weaving shed in the world.

This is the same exhibition that was up at Helmshore earlier this year, but reduced to 15 photographs due to space constraints. If I’m being pedantic, I’d describe it as more of a display than an exhibition due to its location on the wall in the cafe area, but let’s not get bogged down in semantics, eh?

Due to a change in management at the museum, no end date has yet been agreed, so the exhibition will be on until further notice, so why not nip in for tea and a bun and see the fabulous mill engine ‘Peace’ while you’re at it!

    Being former textile workers, though on the Spinning side, myself and Mrs D. had an enjoyable wallow in nostalgia here last year. Well worth a visit.
