Darwen’s historic buildings to get a facelift

June 7, 2009

The centre of Darwen is to get a £2m facelift in order to restore some of its historic buildings.

According to this report in the Lancashire Telegraph

Blackburn with Darwen Council is so concerned about the state of buildings that it has set up the Darwen town centre Townscape Heritage Initiative (THI) and surveyed the commercial centre of the town, including Bridge Street, Bolton Road and Railway Road.

The buildings due for renovation are

Darwen Town Hall, the Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, the Central Conservative Club, tram shelters and memorial, Belgrave Chapel, Burton and Woolworths building, Albert Buildings, 47 Railway Road, 2 and 3 Foundry Street, and the St Peter’s area housing.
