A look back at when Her Majesty The Queen visited Burnley in 1987

With the Queen’s Jubilee bank holiday weekend celebrations only a matter of weeks away we thought it would be nice to take a look back at when the Queen visited Burnley in 1987.

Crowds of people braved the cold and lined the streets around the town centre hoping to catch a glimpse, or even have a quick word, with the much-admired monarch.

The images have been taken from old editions of the Burnley Express and digitised by Burnley Civic Trust.

For anybody who would like to see more, Burnley Civic Trust archive rooms are now open to a restricted number of volunteers who have been vaccinated.
