A TEXTILES firm in Burnley has taken inspiration from some of Britain's most historic buildings for its latest collection.

Designers at Ian Mankin, at Ashfield Mill, have teamed up with the Landmark Trust, for their latest range of 34 fabrics and eight braids.

And it's their structures, dating back from the late 15th to early 17th centuries, which are behind their new 1485 line.

Bosses at the Active Way company say they will be making a donation from every purchase made, from the collection, to support the charity's conservation work.

Mankin himself, who designed clothing for The Beatles before founding his own firm in 1983, retired in 1992.
