Blackburn town is a significant industry town in proximity to Lancaster, West Pennine Moors, Ribble Valley, and Manchester. As a former mill town, Blackburn had most of its historical industry in the production of wool and had a large presence of Flemish weavers who helped develop the woolen cottage industry. In modern times, the community of Blackburn has become a significant investment and redevelopment area.
