About Blackburn

The name of the town derives from the stream known as "Blakewater". The name dates from the Dark Ages, although the site itself is even older. Its old main road from south to north was the Roman road which linked Manchester with Ribchester. Blackburn’s position on this road in Saxon and Viking times made it the chief town of North East Lancashire, which was known then as the Blackburn Hundred. The first entry in the Domesday book of 1086 for Blackburn Hundred was St. Mary’s Parish Church.

A church is believed to have stood on, or near the site since 596, and in 1996,1400 years of Christianity were celebrated with year-long celebrations. The present church was consecrated in 1826 and in 1926 became Blackburn Cathedral when the Diocese of Blackburn was created. The original Grammar School, which is now Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School was founded here in 1509 and the classes used to be held in the old church. It moved to its current premises in 1886. The Industrial Revolution brought momentous changes to Blackburn. In 1750 Blackburn was little more than a village, but by 1850 it had become a boom town with a tenfold increase in its population. Cotton from America became the raw material for textiles. By the end of the nineteenth century Blackburn had become the cotton weaving capital of the world.
