Rather interesting Burnley facts
Did you know that Britain's shortest river is the Brun which runs through Burnley. And Did you know that Burnley Miners’ Social Club sells more Benedictine than any other hostelry in Britain? Burnley buys roughly one in every three bottles of the stuff sold in the UK. As WWI ended local lads were stationed in Fecamp where what they dubbed Bene is made, and during the winter of 1918-19 got a taste for drinking it 50/50 with hot water, still the custom in the town to this day.
