For over 850 years, St. Peter's Church has been at the heart of Burnley.

Its Heritage Centre opened in 2003, telling the story of the Church and its place in the history of the town and its inhabitants.

This website contains a selection of features from the centre, and their relevance is colour coded, as per the key on the bottom left hand corner of all pages.

The church itself is usually open for visitors between 2pm and 4pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
