Of all the buildings which have disappeared from Blackburn town centre over the years, it’s highly likely that this structure is one of the most missed.

Lancashire Telegraph: Ainsworth Street ramp, Blackburn, 1993

Taken in 1993, this photo shows the spiral ramp on Ainsworth Street which took shoppers to a walkway which connected the market to the shopping centre, which was due to be demolished as the market was being redeveloped.

Youngsters, in particular, loved the spiral.
