CONGRATULATIONS to all the eagle-eyed readers who correctly spotted that last week’s picture was the corner of Victoria Street and Lord Street in Blackburn, taken from the old Market Square.

This week’s picture may fox a few of you as it’s a view of what has been described as one of Lancashire’s prettiest villages.

Seen here in the 1930s, the village’s main street is crowded with visitors, many of them ramblers wearing knapsacks.

In the background can be seen the village church, which has a tower dating back to the 15th century, in which hang three bells which used to call the monks at Whalley Abbey to prayer.

It’s thought that this picture was taken around Good Friday due to the bare trees and people wearing overcoats.
