Re: Accrington in the 80's

I'd forgotten what lovely buildings the Market Hall and Town hall were-they had style.
Not like the concrete boxes round them, but that's happened to town centres all over the country.
Thanks, Atarah.

Cheers, Atarah, great piece of film (although I had to turn the sound off, as the "music" is unlistenable). Lots of shops there for Bee to have a look at! Is it my imagination, or did the town look more lively and prosperous 20 years ago...even in the pouring rain!

Re: Accrington in the 80's

I can remember Accy like that when I was very young, I wish it was still like that now with the old market and the old layout of broadway. Miles better.
