This book gives an account of Burnley Grammar School before it was closed and, in doing so, offers an insight into the state of education in the town. It also looks at less well-known aspects of Burnley’s history. Many towns have their claim to fame. For Burnley, this includes a dip into Anglo-Saxon times with Brunanburh, the battle that helped form the character of the English. Included is a nostalgic look back at advertisements in the 60s and 70s which paint a picture of town life from a different era.
The 2nd edition is greatly expanded to include photos and other extracts from the B.G.S yearbook, The Brun.
