Brierfield is a small town between Nelson and Burnley.   It is historically connected to the Quaker movement; their meeting house still stands just down the hill from Marsden Cross.   Huge mill buildings (Smith & Nephew) still dominate much of Brierfield and loom over the housing estate built on the old gas works (you can see the S&N building in the just to the right of center in the picture).
