Weavers Triangle Visitor Centre

Based at Burnley Wharf by the Leeds & Liverpool Canal, the Visitor Centre tells the story of the canal, cotton and the Weavers' Triangle. Oak Mount Mill was built in the 1830 and produced cotton until 1979, making it one of the last steam-powered mills in Burnley. The 1887 W&J Yates steam engine has been restored. It is now operated by an electric motor on certain days.
