Burnley is a market town in Lancashire, England with a population of around 73,500. The town is 34 km north of Manchester and 40 km east of preston, at the meeting of the River Calder and River Burn.
At its peak, it was one of the world's largest producers of cotton cloth, and a major centre of engineering. Burnley now has a post-industrial economy and landscape, and is increasingly a dormitory town for Manchester, Leeds and the M65 corridor.
The town lies in the natural three fork valley where the rivers meet and is surrounded by open fields and wild moorlands at higher altitudes.
Burnley is served by Junctions 9,10 and 11 of the M65 motorway which runs west to Accrington, Blackburn and Preston(where it connects up with the M6) and northeast to Nelson and Colne.
