Books on Barnoldswick

Barnoldswick is another town steeped in history.  Barnoldswick can trace its history back to the Vikings.  Barnoldswick was known as Bernulfsuuic in the Doomsday Book.  In 1147 a monastery was founded here by Cistercian monks from Fountains Abbey, but the locals didn't take too kindly them so they moved on to Kirkstall where they built an abbey.  The monks did leave behind some trace though.  About 10 years after their removal they built the church of St Mary-le-Gill about a mile from Barnoldswick center.  Apparently they built it so far away because of their altercation with the locals.  An old mill town that is now home to many companies; Rolls Royce and Silentnight (actually in Salterforth) being its most famous.

On 17th March 1997, Pendle Council made Barnoldswick town center a Conservation Area (including Manchester Road, Westgate and Town Head), thereby formally acknowledging its special qualities and heritage value.
