Prince Charles is set to visit Burnley’s Weavers Triangle tomorrow just a week after Hurstwood announced the availability of new industrial units in the area.
The Prince’s charity ‘The Prince Trust’ has a number of links to the town and the Prince himself has visited three times in the last four years.
On his last visit he expressed his affection for the old mills in the area and emphasised how important the upcoming regeneration of Weavers Triangle was to the town.
He said: “There aren’t many places like this left or we have allowed them to become derelict. We are wasting assets of immense significance. Don’t let us forget the value of the Weavers’ Triangle in the lives of the community. It could be the making of Burnley.”
Hurstwood’s own property in the area is an old mill on Hammerton Street, on the edge of Weavers Triangle. It is made up of two three-storey buildings that were most recently used as a builder’s yard.
Prince Charles will be at Weavers Triangle between 10am and noon tomorrow.
