WHALLEY ROAD begins at the junction of Peel Street in Accrington and continues to the bustling Ribble Valley village of Whalley with is 14th Century Cistercian Abbey. Over the last 100 years there have been many changes to the types of vehicles used from Horse and carts, to trams, buses , cars, vans & lorries. In the pictures showcased you can see the evidence of change from road surfaces & traffic systems from houses/cottages of old to the new build of today.

This month we will be showcasing Accrington – Altham West border including businesses which range from retail and services to eating establishments and charity shops.
