The Weavers' Triangle is a modern name for an area on the banks of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal that was once at the heart of Burnley's textile industry.
The name was first used in the 1970s, as interest developed in preserving Burnley's industrial heritage, and refers to the roughly triangular shape of the region.
If you explore the area, you will still find many buildings from the days when the town led the world in the production of cotton cloth. A largely unbroken sequence of weaving sheds and spinning mills can be found on the banks of the canal.
The area also contains many other historic buildings - foundries, warehouses, domestic buildings and a school. Of particular interest is Slater Terrace - an unusual row of eleven houses above a canal-side warehouse.
